In Yakutia appeared the Buddhist datsan

The most northern Buddhist temple in the world, which was under construction for five years, opened today in Yakutsk, the press service of the department for the affairs of the peoples of the region reported.

"On October 2, a grand opening took place. Construction began in 2009. For five years, the efforts of the Buryat community and patrons have erected a two-story stone church building with basic interior decoration." It notes that the datsan, built with donations from believers, will become the center of the Buryat national culture. There will be lessons on the study of the Buryat language, culture and various exhibitions.

On the eve of the opening of the temple the head of Yakutia Yegor Borisov held a meeting with the delegation of the Buddhist traditional Sangha of Russia, who came to participate in the coverage of the Buddhist datsan.
