The Monastery is an approximately 45 minute driving distance from the city of Mobile. When first entering the grounds, visitors are led down a long serene path that gives a sense of calm and peace.

Originally owned by a wealthy resident of Mt. Vernon, this property was a vacation resort.  In 2006, the Lotus Association Buddhist Group of Mobile, Alabama purchased this property for Buddhist Meditation practices.  Later, in 2009 this land was donated to Grand Master Thich Tinh Tu and the Sangha of Kim Son Monastery in Watsonville, California.
