West of Black Canyon Freeway & Northern Ave, Phoenix
There is no sign to indicate what this humongous temple is about or what it is doing stuck in the midst of this urban through-fare. It is totally unexpected when you happen upon it. A double tiered cast iron fence surrounds the property. There is no way of getting near the building when its closed. It sits next to a run down vacant lot in a modest residential area. The intricate art work can be seen on the upper corner dragons and statues, if you have binoculars that is. As with many things in the Phoenix area, this place clearly serves a specific community that is not widely known to the general public.
