Take a break from busy Waikiki and renew your spirits at the Byodo-In Temple, at the foot of the Ko'olau Mountains in the Valley of the Temples Memorial Park. Established on June 7, 1968, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Japanese immigrants to Hawaii, the Byodo-In is a replica of a 1,000-year-old temple in Kyoto, Japan.

Byodo-In (which means "Temple of Equality") is home to Amida, a carved, gold-lacquered Buddha towering 18-foot-tall. This massive sculpture is the work of Japanese artist Masuzo Inui and is believed to be the largest Buddha carved outside of Japan.
