Tara Great Stupa for Peace and Harmony

Architecture: agaligo studio, Gaia Studio | Engineering: M-Square

Location: Hua Hin, Thailand

During the years 2008-2010, we have volunteered to design a site plan of a Tibetan Buddhist learning and meditation center for The Thousands Stars Foundation. Situated among lush green hills and lakes, by following the Buddhist concept of Trikaya or The Three Bodies of Buddha, the site was divided in to three zones--Outer, Inner, and Innermost.

One of the main features of the site is a large seventy meters high monument called Tara Great Stupa for Peace and Harmony. The design was conducted under several Tibetan Rinpoches' guidance during trips between Thailand and China. The construction of the stupa started in 2011 and has been continuing with continuous funds from within Thailand and from international communities.
