The Thousand Buddha Temple is located on nearly 6 acres of land in Greensboro, North Carolina. The Temple will feature a spacious shrine room, or Gompa, graced by 1,000 statues of Shakyamuni Buddha. These statues represent all the Buddhas that will appear in this cosmic eon. Each statue was painstakingly crafted by Buddhist lay people across the U.S. over a period of 10 years. Every dollar you donate goes directly to the construction and completion of the Thousand Buddha Temple. Your donation enables you to become a part of the Temple’s future, helping to bring peace and happiness to many.
A list of donors is displayed at the Temple. Donations are tax deductible, as the Thousand Buddha Temple is a registered 501(c)(3) corporation.
