Sokoji Temple

1691 Laguna St.

Founded in 1934, Sokoji Temple is a Zen Buddhist temple. The temple reflects a Japanese architectural style, both in the interior and the exterior. The Zen temple was originally housed in the Jewish Synagogue building at 1881 Bush St. (now the home of Kokoro Assisted Living facility). The current building was completed and dedicated in April of 1984. Rev. Hosen, who founded the temple in 1934, also founded Zenshuji Temple in Los Angeles 10 years earlier
