In September, TripAdvisor once again named Fo Guang Shan’s Zu Lai Temple one of the most popular tourist destination in Sao Paulo, Brazil. It is the temple’s 4th time receiving the award since 2014. Visiting the Zu Lai Temple is currently rated the number 1 activity in Cotia Sao Paulo by its users.

In recent years, TripAdvisor has fully embraced a user-generated style of reviews, allowing travellers from all over the world to write their own comments on the places that they have visited during their travels. It has provided cross-border travellers such as backpackers and travellers from different culture and background with a broader international perspective. Under Fo Guang Shan’s 4 founding principles and 4 work , Zu Lai Temple has been sowing the seeds planted by Master Hsing Yun in Brazil for the last 25 years in propagating Humanistic Buddhism to engage with society and families. Zu Lai Temple has become one of the main places to be visited by many schools in Sao Paulo.

Cotia’s Secretary of Culture and Tourism, Mr Mauro Pires, has recommended Zu Lai Temple to the Sao Paolo legislative assembly television station TV Legislativa SP on numerous occasions. More than 10,000 people visited the temple during the 4 day holiday weekend from September 7 to 9. Zu Lai Temple is a beautiful place to relax, to pray and to meditate. It is suitable for the whole family as well as those looking for a quiet place to visit.

The temple’s Tea House and vegetarian buffet served during the weekends have also received compliments on the TripAdvisor forum, it is a place not to be missed by foodies.
