Buddhist Stupa Costa del Sol malaga

This Buddhist temple was inaugurated in 2003, and at 33 metres tall and 25 metres across the base is the largest in the western world. It is crowned by a golden dome that is visible from the coast between Fuengirola and Benalmádena. The meditation hall has a surface area of 100 square metres and is six metres in height.

It contains murals depicting the most important milestones in the life of Buddha. The paintings were done by artists brought from the Himalayas. This is a Buddhist monument symbolising harmony, prosperity and peace, and its origins go back some 2,500 years.

Road Directions

The locality is perfectly linked to the Costa del Sol by the Mediterráneo Expressway (AP-7; N-340), and by commuter rail also to Fuengirola, Torremolinos and the provincial capital.
