Overview

Arizona Buddhist Temple carries the distinction of being the oldest Buddhist temple in the state. Built in the 1930s, it was closed for a time during World War II, then ravaged by fire and rebuilt in 1961. Affiliated with the Buddhist Churches of America and Nishi Hongwanji in Kyoto, Japan, the temple is open to all people to hear the Dharma together as one family. This is in accordance with the teachings of the Buddha and Shinran Shonin. Educational programs include teachings of Buddhism for Pre-K through high school, as well as adults.
