A Brief History of Valley of the Temples Memorial Park

Temple - Close Up

Paul Trousdale founded the Valley of the Temples Memorial Park in 1963. Located in a unique area of the Windward side of Oahu, our cemetery is home to wildlife such as Japanese koi and wild peacocks, and is surrounded by mountains that overlook the ocean. Our gardens pay homage to many faiths, including Christianity and Buddhism. We have built a replica of Japan’s 950-year-old Byodo-In Temple. Made of concrete, this temple was completed in 1968 to honor the 100th anniversary of the first Japanese immigrants arriving to Hawaii. Our professional, compassionate staff has years of experience caring for families from all walks of life.
