Wat Dhammararam Buddhist Temple

Last month Mike and I were meeting some family out East in the Manteca area. Before we went on our mini road trip I did a little research on the local attractions, and to my surprise a Buddhist temple popped up as a nearby spot. Wat Dhammararam Buddhist Temple is a hidden gem in Stockton with larger than life sculptures telling the story of Buddha. It was surreal seeing all of these vibrant and beautifully detailed pieces contrasted against the grey and overcast landscape. The temple has very suburban surroundings so it felt even more special walking around this place……

This epic resting Buddha was 50ft long! I felt humbled and a bit of wanderlust being around such amazing sculptures belonging to another culture and religion than my own.
