Buddharama Temple is a Buddhist temple currently under construction near Fredrika in Åsele Municipality, Sweden.[1][2][3] It is scheduled to become the largest Buddhist temple in Europe.[2] Originally intended to be funded by the government of Thailand.[3] It will be a Thai-style temple[3] with monks from Thailand residing in a monastery adjacent to the temple. The temple will cater to the spiritual needs of the prominent Thai community in Scandinavia, as well as other Buddhists in Northern Europe.
