The Monterey Peninsula Buddhist Temple is a Buddhist temple located in Seaside, California, on the Monterey Peninsula. The temple is affiliated with the Jodo Shinshu Hongwanji-ha sect of Buddhism, which is the largest sect of Pure Land Buddhism in Japan.

The temple was founded in 1948 and has been serving the Buddhist community in the Monterey Peninsula for over 70 years. It provides a place for individuals to gather, practice Buddhism, and learn about the teachings of the Buddha.

The temple offers a variety of services and activities, including regular Sunday services, meditation sessions, study groups, and cultural events. It also has a Dharma school for children, where they can learn about Buddhism in a fun and engaging way.

The temple's main hall is a traditional Japanese-style building that houses a large statue of Amida Buddha, the central figure in Pure Land Buddhism. The temple grounds also include a beautiful Japanese garden and a memorial area where individuals can pay their respects to loved ones who have passed away.

Overall, the Monterey Peninsula Buddhist Temple is a welcoming and inclusive community that provides a peaceful and supportive environment for individuals to deepen their understanding of Buddhism and find inner peace.
