The Linh Thuu Buddhist temple near Overland Rd. and Maple Grove Rd. will add a new feature in coming months.
The City of Boise approved a permit for a new 22-foot tall pagoda adjacent to the temple on Ardene St. in Boise.
“The proposed Pagoda would measure 18 feet with 9 feet wide wall segments and be approximately 22 feet tall overall,” applicant Paul Hoffman wrote of the building in an application letter. “It will be located in the middle of a small pond approached by pedestrian bridges constructed of stained wood over concrete piers submerged in the water. The Pagoda would included recessed directional exterior lights in the soffits to highlight the Pagoda features.”
The pagoda will measure 225 square feet in size. It features two tiers and a hexagonal shape.
Linh Thuu moved into a new temple building on the site in 2016, after spending nearly 25 years at a three-room house on Overland Rd.
