Small gem of a church building with gorgeous gardens and sweeping views in all directions. Be aware you can only go inside if you are a member, but there is a visitor's area with information and nice restrooms. Lovely friendly people too.

A great place to visit and contemplate the spiritual world. The visitor's centre has a replica of the Norwegian sculptor's Christus statue.

Lovely place to take the family to. Such peaceful grounds and lovely views of the fields. Set on a hill, the majestic looking temple is impressive and beautiful. Great place to ponder and meditate.

Arrived in the middle of a downpour. The grounds although drenched were beautiful. Once the clouds lifted the view was amazing as the temple sits on a low hill. On a clear sunny day I imagine the view is even more stunning. Quiet and peaceful...More
