Panoramic photograph of men, women, and children in front of the Pasadena Buddhist Temple for the building dedication ceremony. 1958 was the founding year for the temple. Japanese text on the right side of the image is also translated in English on the left side. The text reads: "Pasadena Buddhist Church Building Dedication Ceremony November 2nd, 1958." The Pasadena Buddhist Temple Photographs contains photographs and panoramic photographs of the Pasadena Buddhist Temple and members of the church's congregation. In the fall of 1948, early in the temple's history, Mr. and Mrs. Yukio Nishimoto made their home available for services and Dharma school instruction. Temple functions moved to 1106 Lincoln Avenue, where Reverand Daitetsu Hayashima led spiritual guidance. In 1958, the current property at 1993 Glen Ave was purchased and temple construction began. Some of the panormaic and group portraits in this collection include the Buddhist Women's Association, which has been with the temple since its inception, and the Young Buddhist League (YBL). Also pictured are important moments at the Pasadena Buddhist Temple, such as dedication ceremonies and anniversaries.
