It´s a beautiful temple, almost everything came from China.
On weekend there are buddhist´s ceremony , vegetarian lunch and some classes ( meditation, tai chi and kung fu).
There is a carp lake , Buddha statue´s and lots of cherry trees, I guess in 10 to 15 day the cherry is going be full bloom.
You can find peace there.
And if you have kids there are a small playground with a giant painted mural of Buddha besides.
The cafeteria offer bread and vegetarian snacks.
There are some different teas , as lichia or berry.

Paroquia Sao Judas Tadeu

Apesar de ser uma Igreja simples, é bem conservada e tem em seu interior seu lado mais bonito. Independentemente da fé de cada um, é um lugar de paz. Estando na região, vale a pena dar uma passadinha rápida.

Na pacata Jandira, a Praça tem ótima localização e além de eventos e lazer, conta com muitas opções gastronômicas e de compras. De jovens a idosos, a frequencia é bem diversa e gostei muito da limpeza e da conservação do local. No entorno,além de lojas e opções para comer, os bancos acabam complementando a necessidade dos turistas e moradores.

Centro Historico

Reviewed By Travel_World63 - Sao Paulo, SP

The historical center is composed by some small streets with preserved colonial houses of XVI and XVII century. The mother church and the round bandstand in the middle of the square is a meeting point for all that want to escape from the rush of big cities. There is nothing special to see, but the place is quiet, pleasant and relaxing. Around the square there is some good restaurant that serve typical foods. Very nice!

Daily 9am-6pm

Reviewed By yorom - Canada

Sundays here are fantastic. The vibe is very pleasant, the food is great, the vendors/shop owners are very nice and i feel good here.....far away from the megapolis.
I have often bought art work and i have never had any regrets.
Highly recommended.
PS you should come here on an empty stomach!
PSS although most sellers accept credit cards....you will get a better deal with local cash. ATMs abound in Embu.

This is a great park with lots to offer. There is a lake in the middle of the park and there is a track that goes around the perimeter of the park that is a little over 1 km long. It is a nice place to come as a family. There is also a mini city and a playground for kids. Free parking is available.

Templo Odsal Ling

Reviewed By Travel_World63 - Sao Paulo, SP

Hidden in the Capuava road in Cotia, this tibetan budhist temple is founded by master Ripoche from an ancient lineage of of budhism. No one suspects that behind walls painted in salmon, it has a well preserved jewel. Colorful and well painted, the building is very unique in terms of architecture and spiritual proposal. All decorated with sacred animals and golden details, the artistic value of the house is amazing. Following the tibetan tradition, the philosophical teaching is transmitted orally, because most manuscripts were written in Sanskrit and Tibetan. The lying down Budha is the first statue to visit, whom represents the reincarnation of sleeping deity in His eternal rest (euphemism of death). The flags spreading fortune, house of lamps and the niches of bell wheel complement the main hall. In this magnificent hall, there is an imponent Budha statue and the tables where the followers meditate and learn the classes from the masters. Downstairs, there is a dining hall and souvenir shop. They serve meals on Sundays upon previous request. The free visits to the temple is guided by students of budhism on weekends. You have to arrive by car (there is a free parking lot) and push the bell to enter. Really a fantastic spiritual retreat for purification of stressful big cities. Good tour for small groups.

Museu Casa do Anhanguera

Reviewed By margarete p - Sao Paulo, SP

just a few things to be seen, but it´s good to learn about the first inhabitants of this place. It has objects, furniture and videos. The house itself is very interesting. But it was not exactly hoje of the known Anhanguera, it´s an example of the first houses of the place.
