Large Buddhist Temple Gains Us Approval Image
Plans for a 60-foot-high Theravada Buddhist Temple gained construction approval in the small town of Raynham, Massachusetts, according to local media sources.

The temple grounds will encompass a 60-foot-high monastery, cultural center, museum, and residence for about 16 Thai Buddhist monks living in the area.

Having used in a small New England farmhouse for the past four years, a group of Thai Buddhist monks have gained approval from the local Planning Board to construct what will be one of the largest Buddhist temples in the world.

The temple and meditation center will be used for educational and religious purposes, including meditation and chanting services, religious rites, and teaching about Buddhism, Thai culture, and language.

Topped with a 180-foot golden spear the complex will culminate the long-held dream of Boston-area Thai residents to have a place of worship for their religious beliefs and revered King Rama IX, Bhumibol Adulyadej, who was born in nearby Cambridge in 1927.
