The design of Thubten Cökhor Ling
The temple will be comprised of three floors with a central glass pavilion opening into a large atrium, which will illuminate the floors below. The roof terrace will offer panoramic views and all surmounted by a golden alloy roof.
The ground floor shrine hall will accommodate up to 500 people with large shrines to Buddha Shakyamuni and Padmasambhava. The first floor will house a substantial library with glazed vertical wall panels to enclose the library facilities and provide views through the atrium of the shrine hall below.
The Temple will be a significant building on many important levels. It will also provide an inspiring physical home for the teachings of the Buddha to be nurtured, practised and accomplished. The Temple will benefit many beings on different levels; from those who simply, but significantly, decide to be kinder, to those who seek liberation and to free all beings.
