Tibetan Buddhist Temple (1996), on Heintzman Street (build c. 1918)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Tibetan Buddhist Temple. It has 108 statues of Guru Rinpoche, the Buddha who brought Buddhism to Tibet! I visited during regular Saturday service and was welcomed. If you do not look like an average Tibetan, you may feel a bit out of place.

Way before there were any Tibetans in Toronto, the temple was a showroom of Heintzman Piano Co. and Polish WWII Veteran Hall, in it's prior incarnations!

Hand held exposure! No Parkinson, yet!
