  • After seeing a ton of Temples this beautiful little sanctuary was an ideal stop. Such a great garden and friendly staff. I’m so glad we did not miss this gem.  more »
  • So disappointing, I saw three large butterflies and some small ones, not a large variety. I would not recommend spending your time or money here  more »
