Few People Realize There’s A Hidden Temple Right Here In North Carolina

One of the best things about living in, and/or being from, the Tar Heel State is discovering new and exciting things about where we live. There are many spiritual places found within North Carolina, the Billy Graham Library and prayer garden in Charlotte is one of those places. But there are others, including a stunning Buddhist Temple and surrounding grounds hidden in plain sight in another large city in North Carolina.

Van Hahn Pagoda is tucked away between subdivisions in the heart of Raleigh. The address is 4229 Forestville Rd., Raleigh, NC 27616. Find out more on the official website for the temple and the NC Buddhist Association. The website is mostly written in Vietnamese. If you prefer to call, the number is (919) 266-4230.
