The Great Pagoda Paris

I stumbled upon a signboard pointing towards this place of worship in the first few months I was in Paris while visiting the Zoo.

It took us nearly two years to finally visit this place and for a delayed Wesak celebration. Nestled in the massive grounds of Bois de Vincennes, there is a Buddhist Temple.

There are frequent events at this location often promoting Asian countries. You can check the agenda at their official website or facebook page.

I like this place as it seems to have representation of Buddhism from Sri Lanka, Tibet, Thailand, Burmese and Japanese. I ate mixed vegetarian rice from one of the stalls which was lovely. The grounds were welcoming and it was a good spiritual trip for the family.
