The current study employs the leisure motivation scale to examine motivations of non- Buddhists visiting Buddhist temples. Speciﬁcally, this investigation builds on tourism literature to explore the motivations of non-Buddhists visiting Buddhist temples in Los Angeles, California. Motivations to Buddhist temples are of particular interest given the increasing popularity in the West of Eastern spiritual activities, such as yoga and meditation, as well as the exponential growth of Buddhist-themed tourism campaigns. The ﬁndings provide insights for tourism ofﬁcials responsible for promoting ways to attract tourists to Buddhist temples within their respective destinations.
