Take a virtual temple tour

Manjushri KMC is home to the first Kadampa Temple for World Peace, which houses the largest bronze statue of Buddha cast in the West.

Though built according to a traditional design, it is a modern Temple that provides a peaceful respite from our otherwise busy world. Each year, thousands of people visit the Temple to admire its artistic and architectural features and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere.

The Temple is open for individual and group tours throughout the year. Download the the Temple Guide

The Temple was designed by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, who oversaw its construction and inaugurated the International Temples Project (ITP) with the intention to build a Temple for World Peace in every major city of the world. To date there are over twenty Temples opened under the auspices of this project with many more being planned.

The statues and many of the adornments for these Temples are manufactured at the Kadampa Studio based at Manjushri KMC.
