Inaugurated on 21st March 1999, the Kun Iam Ecumenical Centre was designed and built by the Portuguese architect and sculptor, Cristina Rocha Leiria, with UNESCO support, in order to promote mutual respect and friendship among all peoples and civilizations.
Kun Iam–a deity embodying love, mercy, and compassion–is a figure that represents a message of solidarity and rapprochement between people, worshipped even beyond the scope of the Buddhist faith. The Kun Iam Ecumenical Centre is a place where people can worship different gods. There’s also an exhibition hall downstairs explaining the centre’s history but also some of the city’s traditions and more.
Opening hours: Saturday–Thursday, 10:00am–6:00pm
