  • Buddha Image Room Building Project
  • Construction of a beautiful new temple room to house our largest Sakyamuni Buddha image will commence at our Centre this year. The new room will enclose an existing deck and protect our wonderful Buddha image. The design includes large fold-away glass doors allowing our Buddha image to be easily viewed from the surrounding gardens during outdoor events.
