This Temple for world peace was opened in 2019, with thousands of Kadampa practitioners celebrating its opening at the International Kadampa Fall Festival. For images of the opening please click here.
It’s unique design is based on the holy mandala of Buddha Heruka, Buddha of Compassion. Both the special five-tiered architectural design and the sacred art within reveal that the temple is a representation of the Pure Land of Heruka Buddha and Vajrayogini Buddha.
The Temple is located at the International Kadampa Retreat Center Grand Canyon (IKRC) just outside Williams, Arizona. The IKRC also features hotel-quality accommodations, a Cafe, bookstore, group dining facilities, and residential community.
Every year the IKRC hosts special retreat programs, celebrations and special events, as well as weekly classes and study programs at the Temple.
It sits adjacent to the beautiful pine Kaibab National Forest, and is only 65 miles from the breath-taking Grand Canyon.
