This is an amazing creation on a mountain roadside. A short 30-minute side trip is all you need to relax and sit in the quiet peaceful surroundings of this gorgeous architectural creation. Don't miss it!

Sorry for the tardy reply. Yes, it is wheelchair accessible although it is a long trek (about 200 meters) from the parking lot. Double doors allow for entry by wheelchairs.
