Buddhist Temple

This serine place holds a violent past. About 8 years ago, a young man walked into the temple and executed nine people, which included six Buddhist monks, a nun and two acolytes. A temple member found the bodies lying side by side in what appeared to be an execution-style killing. The homicides were label the largest mass slaying in Maricopa County’s history.

Since Sharon and I were heading out to the White Tank Mountains in the west valley in Waddell, we decided to stop by the temple to check it out. It was a peaceful place with gorgeous statues and art around the grounds. We both felt a sense of calm and tranquility as we were wandering around.


  1. That was easily the most peaceful place I've been in a long time.

  2. Excellent ... what a cool find.
