The massive injustice that was the internment of Japanese Canadians, including entire families, in the name of national security during WWII, plays an integral part in the story of Manitoba Buddhist Temple. Learn how families who lost everything sacrificed to construct the temple, still attended by many of those families today, and how the temple came to serve as the social and cultural hub of a thriving Japanese Canadian community after the war. Discover more about the temple, hear about its former feline residents and experience the beauty of the golden shrine at the heart of it.
Free parking is available in the Health Sciences Centre surface lot along Notre Dame Avenue directly across from the temple.
Guided tours will run every 60 minutes starting at 12:00pm, with the last tour departing at 4:00pm. Tours will be approximately 25 to 30 minutes in length with a maximum 15 guests. Registration is required!
