The Hana Buddhist Temple, also known as the Hana Hongwanji Gakuen Temple, is a Japanese Buddhist temple located in Hana, Maui, Hawaii. It was built in 1940 by skilled local Japanese carpenters in the Hawaiian Eclectic style, which is a fusion of traditional Japanese and western plantation construction styles. The temple is characterized by its two-story pagoda roof, its carved wooden beams, and its colorful murals.

The Hana Buddhist Temple is a significant cultural landmark in Maui. It was built by the Japanese immigrants who settled in Hana in the late 1800s, and it served as a community center for the Japanese community for many years. The temple is still used for religious services today, and it is also a popular tourist destination.

The Hana Buddhist Temple is located at 1819 Hana Highway in Hana, Maui. It is open to the public from 9am to 4pm daily. Admission is free.

Here are some more details about the temple:

• The temple is 50 feet tall and has a seating capacity of 200 people.
• The roof is made of red tile and is supported by 12 pillars.
• The beams are carved with images of cranes and elephants, which are auspicious symbols in Japanese Buddhism.
• The murals inside the temple depict scenes from Buddhist mythology.
• The temple is surrounded by a garden with a pond and a waterfall.

The Hana Buddhist Temple is a beautiful and historic building that is worth visiting if you are in Maui. It is a reminder of the Japanese heritage of the island, and it is a peaceful place to reflect and meditate.
