An peculiar yoga temple with an interesting history.


Tom Telfer's Take
Located off West Cliffs Drive, the temple was constructed by Kenneth "Claire" Kitchen and his brother Raymond in the 1930s. All of the bricks were laid by moonlight due to their beliefs in Eastern mythology (and also because he couldn't obtain a building permit). The yoga temple is lined with abalone shells from a local processing plant.
