The City of Ten Thousand Buddhas is featured in an article titled "Why Off-the-Grid, Offbeat Mendocino County Is Worth the Road Trip From SF." Below is the excerpt about CTTB.
After passing through the gilded Gate of Three Arches of The City of 10,000 Buddhas, take a second to soak in the tranquility that comes with entering one of the first Chinese Zen Buddhist temples in the US. With 488 acres of land -- most of which is meadows and lush, open space -- the property is otherworldly. Keep your eyes open for the anomaly of countless peacocks wandering the grounds as well as the enlightening street intersections such as Patience and Compassion Way.
