The Fo Guang Shan He Hua is a faith of the Buddha's Light International Association. He Hua literally means the lotus flower which symbolizes enlightenment. The temple is therefore also known as the lotus temple. Albeit the fact that this is the largest Buddhist shrine in Europe you still tend to find peace and tranquil within its walls. Typical to the Chinese and Buddhist architecture, the temple is an exemplary structure consisting of traditional gates, shrine, pagodas and carved niches. Additional to the shrine, the complex also houses a meditation center, a meeting room, library, dining room and bedrooms.
