Temple complex project

The Moscow Buddhist Society, a religious organization, has become an initiator of this Project for construction of the Temple Complex in Moscow.

The project of building The Buddhist Temple Complex is of key importance because at present, there is no any Buddhist temple in the capital.

The Moscow Buddhist Society has performed a wide scope of work for development and coordination of all engineering and permission documentation required for construction.

As a result, the construction project for The First Buddhist Temple Complex has been supported by the Government of Moscow, the Administration of the President of the Russian Federation, citizens of Otradnoe sub-district.

Moscow Buddhist Society does not authorize any private persons or companies to collect donations for the project. If you want to donate, please, find our details here.
