The Fo Guang Shan He Hua Temple  in Amsterdam is the largest Buddhist temple in Europe.  Built in traditional palace-style it is has a Chinese 'Pure Land' atmosphere, however, Buddhism is universal and beyond culture and architectural features. The He Hua Temple, this most unlikely of structures in the heart of this most bizarre European capital certainly demonstrates that point!

With thanks to the budjet airline Flybe bassed at Southampton airport that is in turn just a short bus ride from my front door I have been able to make several trips to this place in 2008 and 9.

Why? Why not! Perversely it is actually cheaper and takes no longer for me to get to Amsterdam than to London which is only 80 miles up the road from here.
