In Historic Downtown Niagara Falls, you will find a 16 ton, 3.8 metre (12 foot) high rare green Jade stone in the centre of the building. Worth one million dollars, the stone arrived in Niagara Falls in 1997. This institute also offers free mediation courses that are held by Buddhist Monks from Thailand. The parking is free. Visitors are welcome, but it's a good idea to telephone first to alert the resident staff that you are coming.
