Gain enlightenment as you explore some hidden gems of Los Angeles when we visit two unique architectural landmarks on this fascinating tour. First, immerse yourself in the glorious traditions, culture and faith of India when we enter a traditional Hindu place of worship, the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Chino Hills. You’ll take a docent-guided tour of the spectacular Mandir, which embraces the quintessence of Hindu divinity and Indian architectural excellence. Next, enjoy lunch at Benihana, where talented chefs perform skilled maneuvers while preparing lunch right at your table! After lunch, we’ll explore the Hsi Lai Temple (pronounced “She Lie”) and gardens, the largest Buddhist monastery in the Western Hemisphere. Located in Hacienda Heights and situated on 15 acres, the very size and majesty of Hsi Lai Temple is awe-inspiring. You’ll tour beautiful theme gardens, shrines, and more, including the Main Shrine, the central courtyard and a museum exhibiting a collection of fascinating Buddhist artifacts from different countries around the world.
