The Sándor Kőrösi Csoma Memorial Park lies right next to main road nr. 21, at the foot of Mátra hill, on a picturesque area. From the top of the memorial there’s an amazing panorama to hills Mátra and Cserhát. The cows grazing peacefully nearby, the fields and hills covered with forests provide an idyllic environment for those longing for peace and tranquillity.
The memorial park has been established and is maintained by the Hungarian Karma Kagyüpa Buddhist Community in order to promote, maintain and nurture of universal human values and the priceless values of the our nation’s ancient traditions.
The main attraction of the Memorial Park is the traditional buddhist funeral commemorating our great scientist Sándor Kőrösi Csoma.

The Stupa is a sacred building in which consecrated relics and objects were placed, providing peace and tranquillity to all pilgrims and visitors. The Memorial Pavillion of Sándor Kőrösi Csoma, built in the style of the Tibetian sacred traditions, stands next to the Stupa, presenting the life of our great scientist pilgrim, aka of the Enlightened of the Western World.
