The project of building the Buddhist temple in the city of Moscow, the capital of multinational Russia, is the most important mission of Moscow Buddhist Society. It was Moscow Buddhist Society who initiated this construction, which is important for the whole country. The implementation of the project for construction of the Buddhist temple prepared by the Society received the support of both the Government of Moscow and the Deputy of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Trustees for the construction of the Buddhist temple, Iosif Davydovich Kobzon.
Representatives of Moscow Buddhist Society, people of different nationalities, provide all possible assistance for the construction of the Buddhist temple in Moscow, which complements the already existing Temple Complex of World Religions in Otradnoye.
