Temple in the Jungle Highlands - Byodo-In
I would never have guessed that something as ornate and unique as this would be buried up in the deep jungled highlands of Oahu!
It is a popular destination, and I guess people in Oahu know about it, but I had never heard of such a place. This is the Byodo-In Temple, and I happened to arrive right when the sun came out. This is a nice time because the morning fog and storms had left many layers of clouds and mist in the background, which gave everything a very unusual feel…
