Two new Buddha statues enhance the Buu Mon Buddhist Temple gardens in Port Arthur.

Look for the bright red pagoda and step inside flowering gardens.

Garden Festival features cultural presentations of music and dance. Stroll through gardens of lotus blossoms, roses, towering bamboo, citrus and koi ponds. Saffron-robed monks may guide visitors through the temple and meditation areas. Several statues highlight the grounds. Venders will offer crafts and cuisine.
