A sacred Buddhist monument designed to last 1000 years is taking shape at the Crystal Castle.

The Kalachakra Stupa, is the first of it’s kind in the Southern Hemisphere and is meant to be a good omen in times of war, conflict and natural disasters.

Today monks placed sacred scrolls and objects inside the monument, before it was sealed shut.

“The Tibeten buddhist believe just seeing a stupa, being involved with it or just touching it or being around it in any form is good for Karma and spiritual development”

The monument should be finished before the end of the year.
