The Seattle Betsuin Buddhist Temple is a Buddhist temple located in Seattle, Washington, USA. It is part of the Jodo Shinshu school of Buddhism, which is also known as the Shin sect. The temple was founded in 1901, making it one of the oldest Buddhist temples in the United States.

The Seattle Betsuin Buddhist Temple offers a variety of services and activities to its members and the wider community. These include regular Sunday services, meditation sessions, and classes on Buddhist teachings and practices. The temple also hosts cultural events and festivals throughout the year, including the annual Bon Odori festival, which celebrates the Japanese custom of honoring ancestors.
