What is the Temple’s Purpose?

The Surry Hills Temple provides a quiet and comfortable environment where people can experience inner peace, learn about Modern Buddhism and meditate with a community of people who are all trying to improve the quality of their life, and our world, by improving the quality of their mind.

World Peace

The World Peace Temple in Surry Hills is a part of the International Temples Project, a charitable organisation established by Venerable Geshe Kelang Gyatso with the vision of creating Temples dedicated to world peace in every major city in the world.

A Quiet Place for Reflection

Our Temple is a quiet space where you can engage in personal meditation or just simply take some time to enjoy the peaceful beauty of our modern Buddhist shrine. You are always welcome to drop around to the Temple.
