Hundreds of Chinese Buddhists from all over Europe were in Rome on 6 November for the opening of the first Chinese Buddhist temple in Europe in Via Ferruccio 8, near the Piazza Vittorio in the Esquilino area of the city. The temple was opened in the presence of eight monks from the Chinese province of Zhejiang, who were accompanied by 50 novice monks. It is dedicated to one of the four most famous Buddhist temples in China, each of which represents a sacred Chinese mountain. The Rome building takes its name from the temple and mountain Pu Tuo Shan which is in Chinas Zhejiang province, and is the school most followed by the Romes Chinese Buddhist community.
