Nipponzan Myohoji Atlanta Dojo
1127 Glenwood Ave., SE
Atlanta, GA 30316

We are located just off I-20 in the city of Atlanta on Glenwood Avenue, near the intersection of Moreland Ave.

From north or south on I-75 or I-85, take I-20 heading east towards Augusta. Take exit 60A, Moreland Ave., South and turn right. At the second traffic light, turn right onto Glenwood Ave. The temple is one-half block up on the left, number 1127.

If you are coming into Atlanta via I-285, get on I-20 heading into the city.

Traveling west on I-20, take exit 59, Glenwood Ave. At the top of the ramp, turn left. Go through four traffic lights, the fourth one being the intersection with Moreland Ave. After crossing Moreland, the temple will be one-half block on the left, number 1127.

For those eastbound on I-20, take exit 60A, Moreland Ave., South and follow the same directions as those coming from the north/south.

Smoky Mountains Peace Pagoda
1878 Peace Pagoda Way
Newport, TN 37821

The Great Smoky Mountains Peace Pagoda is located on top of a mountain, elevation 2,200 feet, directly off Interstate 40 in eastern Tennessee and adjacent to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We are about 1 hour's drive from both Knoxville, TN to the west and Asheville, NC to the east.

From I-40, take exit 440 [Wilton Springs Road] and head north on Route 73. If you are westbound on I-40 (i.e, coming from the Asheville direction), turn right coming off the exit ramp. Coming east on I-40 (coming from the Knoxville direction), turn left at the bottom of the ramp. either way, go past a Sunoco station on the left, which all the locals call "The Truck Stop."

Past the truck stop, take the first right turn onto Maple Lane. From this point there are signs saying "Peace Pagoda" to guide you up the hill, however, here are the directions just in case. Stay on the paved road and at Branch Drive take a left. The road goes up a hill, bends to the left. Continue on it until Woodland Way. This sign is partially hidden and therefore hard to see, but it comes just as the paved road ends, past the turns for Trail Way and Cardinal Way.
Turn right on Woodland Way, coming up the dirt and gravel road until you get to Peace Pagoda Way. Turn left and continue a short distance to the Stone Pagoda.

You can park near the Stone Pagoda or turn right and drive up the last 3/10th mile to the temple. However DO NOT drive up unless you have 4-wheel drive. This road is very steep and the road surface is very loose. You can either walk up the hill or call us before arriving (423-613-8209) and we can meet you and drive you up.
