2. Magical Temple
The Festival will be hosted by Deuachen Kadampa Meditation Centre in Sintra Portugal, which is home to the fourth traditional modern Kadampa Buddhist Temple.
This exquisite Temple arose from the heart of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, who personally found the site and oversaw its design and construction. Venerable Geshe-la opened the Temple with a special blessing ceremony at the International Fall Festival in 2013.
3. Magical place
The Temple is only a 10 minute drive from the enchanting town of Sintra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and just 30 minutes from the historic capital, Lisbon.
The area abounds with mountains, beaches, forests and magical castles. The perfect location for a vacation with a difference.
