The oldest Buddhist temple in Europe

[Moderation's edit: Removed restricted link.]

The oldest Buddhist temple in Europe is Hosheutovsky khurul (1818). The Hosheutovsky Buddhist complex was partly destoyed in 1930-ties, but the major temple survived and was recently restored.

Re: 2016 Wu Tai Shan & E Mei Shan Pilgrimage
