Lumbini Udyana Mahachaitya : An Eco – Monastery in Lumbini

Posted Mar 11th, 2011 under Tourism News,

Lumbini Udyana Mahachaitya World Center for Peace and Unity (LUM), the largest Buddhist temple and meditation hall in Lumbini will be opened for public this April. The building which covers an area of 48,600 sq.ft. took five years to complete. Touted as an eco-monastery, the building’s design incorporates maximum use of natural light and will have power generated by solar panels. According to Lama Trungram Gyaltrul Rinpoche, who is leading the project, this project is “an effort to save the ancient arts and wisdom, to highlight the importance of our gentleness to the earth, and to promote a sense of peace and unity for all“. The monastery’s architectural design is a harmonious blend of a chaitya based on the ancient Indian work of Shariputra’s stupa found at Nalanda University, with touches of Nepalese architecture and Tibetan artwork.
