Temple

With seating for 200, our main temple is a 900 square foot building with natural hardwood flooring and colorful Tibetan carpets.

Upon the altar rest beautiful buddha statutes, upon the walls large beautiful thangkas. The space is perfect for classes, workshops, meditation and yoga retreats, weddings, ceremonies, etc.

Stupa

The Garchen Institute Stupa is a Buddhist shrine designed and created by His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche, who has said that the design came to him in a dream. Octagonal, with a central pillar filled with sacred relics, this stupa is incredibly unique and unlike any other in the world. Its interior is graced by beautiful Tibetan carpets, unique monochromatic thangkas, and beautifully presented meditations on the nature of mind and the path. The exterior walk-way leading up to the stupa is concrete and handicap accessible, as is the path around the stupa itself – perfect for walking meditation and circumambulation.
