Golden Reliquary Stupa Information

Reliquary Building Relics of the 14th Shamarpa (1952-2014) were placed in golden stupas, located in a few locations around the world. In the U.S., a golden stupa is housed inside a reliquary building in Natural Bridge, VA.

This project involved the completion of many steps:

Reliquary Stupa

A site was chosen on the same hill ("Buddha Hill") as the timber-framed pavilion called the Buddha Pavilion. A donor sponsored the clearing of the site, and another donor sponsored a beautiful path that was landscaped (see photo collage at bottom of the page) for visitors to enjoy the serene environment while strolling between the reliquary stupa site and the pavilion.

Donations are being accepted for the surrounding landscaping.
