Buddhists believe that walking around a Temple that houses a statue of Buddha brings great good fortune. It is called ‘circumambulating’ and is usually done in a clockwise direction.

The Temple is one of five Kadampa Temples around the world. The Temple’s unique design is based on the celestial palace of Heruka, the Buddha of Compassion.
