In 1997, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche opened the first Kadampa Temple for World Peace at Manjushri KMC in the UK, which was built largely by Kadampa builders and volunteers according to Venerable Geshe-la's design. Based on the mandala palace of Buddha Heruka, each aspect of the temple teaches the spiritual path and encourages us to use our human lives in meaningful ways.

Since then Venerable Geshe-la has overseen the design and construction of five traditional-style temples. Construction of the traditional temple at KMC Spain began in September 2020 and more are planned for the future. All the temples are dedicated for peace in the world.

Every year, tens of thousands of people visit our temples and our Buddhist, meditation and retreat centers around the world. Some attend courses and retreats to learn how to develop inner peace through meditation, while others view the sacred objects and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere. Whatever the reason for the visit, as Geshe-la has commented on several occasions, whoever sees a temple or the sacred objects in it will receive a special blessing that sows a seed of future peace and happiness in his mind.

Sintra, Portugal · 2013

KMC Deuachen 

Venerable Geshe-la opened the Sintra Temple on October 25, 2013, on the occasion of Je Tsongkhapa's Enlightenment Day celebration. Its architecture, symbolism and its original art provide a beauty that calms our minds, and also has a deep spiritual meaning. Although the symbolism and essence of each temple is the same, as it is built in different parts of the world, it is impregnated with the style of the place, giving each temple a special air that is always integrated into the place where it appears.

Williams, AZ 2019

IRC Grand Canyon 

In autumn 2019, in the tranquil surroundings of the IKRC Grand Canyon, the fifth Kadampa Temple for World Peace was inaugurated, based on the mandala and the heavenly mansion of Buddha Heruka, the Buddha of compassion. Both the unique five-tier architectural design and the sacred art inside reveal that the temple is a representation of the Pure Land of Buddha Heruka and Buddha Vajrayogini.
