A new Buddhist temple opens in Russia

The spiritual leader of Russian Buddhists named Pandito Hambo Lama Damba Ayushev, has devoted a new temple in the East Siberian city of Chita.

Recounting it as a “historic event”, the head of the Russian Buddhists supposed that Chita has consequently become the second Russian city, subsequent to St. Petersburg, to welcome a Buddhist monastery.

The suggestion to construct it came on 16 years ago. Building works however, began only in 2007.

The earlier monastery was built in Chita 111 years ago, but was blistered down 15 years later, in blurred circumstances. The new one is said to be similar to it, having personified the features of the Buddhist-Buryat architecture.

The statue of Buddha in impudence has the height of a normal man – 1.8 meters (6 feet) as well as heads of dragons, and the Buddhist altar was shed in the Mongolian capital, Ulan Bator.
