The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion is situated near Bendigo, Victoria.

The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion is situated near Bendigo, Victoria.

The Great Stupa will be the same size and design as The Great Stupa of Gyantse in Tibet. Currently rising 25 metres above Bendigo’s distinctive bushland, The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion has grown well past its halfway point. While a further 20 metres will be added to complete the exterior there is already a lot to see at this amazing project which is about to become the largest Buddhist Stupa in the Western world.

The Great Stupa is home to many holy objects. Foremost amongst these is the magnificent Jade Buddha for Universal Peace. Which is the largest Buddha carved from gem quality jade in the world. The Jade Buddha for Universal Peace has been on a world tour since 2009 and over 10 million people have seen it.

When the tour is over, The Jade Buddha will come to its final home at The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion in Bendigo.
