Welcome to the Tri-State/Denver Buddhist Temples (TS/DBT). TS/DBT is a collection of six Jodo Shinshu Buddhist Sanghas (communities); the Denver Buddhist Temple serves as Headquarters for all of these Colorado temples (while also providing services to an eight state region). In turn, we are all affiliated with Buddhist Churches of America (BCA) in San Francisco, CA who operates under the umbrella of Honpa Hongwanji in Kyoto, Japan.

First generation Japanese immigrants and second generation Japanese-American Buddhists established the first Jodo Shinshu Buddhist Temple in Denver in 1916. (this website has been created by the Denver Buddhist Temple, so much of the text and photos are centered around our activities and practices. However, the spirit and philosophy applies directly to our affiliated temples/sanghas.)

We offer Sunday Services and Dharma School (akin to Sunday School) during the school calendar months (September - June). Visitors are always welcome to attend. As you can surmise by our website headings, we are an active temple. If you have an interest in learning more about Buddhism and/or participating in your Buddhist journey with other who are similarly minded, we wholeheartedly invite you to attend a service, join one of the affiliated groups, peruse our website, contact us via phone or email OR all of the above.
