Our take...

The Lingyen Mountain Temple is one of Richmond first Buddhist Temples. There

is an accessible transit stop close to the entrance to the Temple. They are open to

the public for daily guided tours. A vegetarian lunch meal is offered daily between

10:50-12:00, with a second service from 12:00-1:00 on Saturdays only. Most public

areas can be viewed and are reasonably accessible. As well accessible washrooms are

available on the ground level. The staff and volunteers are very accommodating, and

will be happy to help wherever they can.
