Norras Temple

Third Floor Buddhist Temple

Address: Phone:

(Third Floor)
San Francisco, CA 94108

This venerable Buddhist temple was constructed more than five decades ago. One of its highlights is an altar made from imported Chinese wood--a beautiful piece of art that adorns the old building. There are symbols and signs of Tibetan Buddhism throughout the temple, from tiny Buddha statues inside five-foot tall mandalas to the shrine that depicts Buddha and his followers. The temple was named after its predecessor, the Norras Buddhist Temple in Tibet.
