Kadampa Buddhist Temple For World Peace


The modern Temple for World Peace provides a place for quiet reflection and spiritual inspiration. It is used every day for meditation and prayers.
The design is a representation of Buddha's Pure Land and contains holy precious objects revealing the path to liberation and enlightenment. The centrepiece is a large statue of Buddha Shakyamuni. Each year thousands of people visit the Temple to admire its artistic and architectural features and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere. 'Just looking at the Temple with a happy mind brings inner peace' Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
