It is situated in a temple of Tibetan and Bhutanese style that was inaugurated January 27, 1985, constructed nearby the "Pagode du bois de Vincennes", site of the Institut international bouddhique founded by Jean Sainteny.
In 1980, Kalu Rinpoche conferred in the Pagode du bois de Vincennes the Initiation of Kalachakra. He then met with Jean Ober, the general secretary of the Institut international bouddhique and together, they conceived a project to construct a Tibetan temple. The plans of the temple, established by the architect Jean-Luc Massot on the directives of Kalu Rinpoche, were approved by the Paris city hall. The first stone was laid on March 20, 1983. The works realized on private founds and with the help of many volunteers took two years.
