KUAN YIN BUDDHIST TEMPLE - CANADA
Buddhist Society's Kuan-Yin Buddhist Temple is the largest Buddhist temple in Canada, and it is the most exquisite example of Chinese palatial architecture in North America. The main focus of the exterior of the Temple is its palatial roof, which is similar in structure to that of any royal edifice within the Forbidden City of Beijing, China. The roof is covered entirely with red-orange porcelain tiles imported from China. The Temple introduces Buddhism to the public through Chinese art, sculpture, architecture, gardening, painting, calligraphy, chanting, embroidery and traditional Buddhist ceremonies and customs.
