Local Buddhist Temple Welcomes Visitors!

Cham Shan Temple Welcomes Visitors May 26 and June 10!!

Omemee visitors driving north from Bethany, frequently pose questions about Cham Shan Temple at Ski Hill Road. Cham Shan Temple is holding two special events very soon that will enable visitors to appreciate the work in progress at Wutai Shan Buddhist Garden in Canada. On May 26th there will be a photography competition, and June 10th a special prayer ceremony and luncheon will be held to which visitors are invited.

Wisdom Garden

Unique Architectural Building Method Used

Wutai Shan Buddhist Temple
Wutai Shan Buddhist Temple is the first of four temples to be built. Wutai Shan Temple entrance is at 771 Ski Hill Road Bethany, but the majority of the land is located in Peterborough County, Ontario. The other three temples will be built on nearby lands in Pontypool, and Bethany. The facilities plan to use solar power, and be as green as possible. The four temple sites will be collectively known as the Four Sacred Buddhist Mountains of Canada.

The temples will be built according to classical traditional "dougong" style architectural and methods used in the Tang Dynasty. This construction method involves interlocking wooden brackets. No nails or any other fasteners will be used. As shown in the picture below.

Most of the wood will be rosewood and it will have a gently sloping "eave" roof of bronze tiles.

Photography Competition Celebrates 1st Anniversary

“On May 26 a photography competition will mark the anniversary of our ground-breaking,” shared Diane Chen, Cham Shan property manager, adding "there will be a tea ceremony demonstration and flower arrangement demonstration by Wisdom Pond, a free luncheon, and shuttle service between the 8 major points of interest."

Life Protection Service June 10

On June 10 a traditional Life Protection Service will be held at Wutai Shan Buddhist Garden in Canada on Ski Hill Road, followed by a vegetarian luncheon.
The Anniversary Photography Day will run from 10 am to 3 pm on May 26th and the Life Protection Service and luncheon will be the same hours on June 10th.
