No I haven’t lost my mind, you have read it correctly, there is a real-size replica of UNESCO World Heritage Kinkaku-ji temple near São Paulo. The Atlantic rainforest near Itapecerica da Serra, 40 km from the centre of São Paulo, is host to this outstanding construction.
There is no public transportation to the temple, set in what is known as the Vale dos Templos (Valley of the Temples). A smaller Enko-ji temple sits nearby.
