We’re Celebrating
10 Years of Public Service

Created and developed under the compassionate vision of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, the World Peace Temple appeared in 2006. Since then it has become a place of pilgrimage for Kadampa practitioners from all around the world as well as a haven for people of the local community to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and experience the peace of meditation.
