Ilyumzhinov congratulated the residents of Kalmykia with the anniversary of the Central khurul

I heartily congratulate the residents of Kalmykia with the 10th anniversary of the Central khurul "Golden Abode of Buddha Shakyamuni." I want to thank the architects, builders - all those who with their work and prayers, managed to build a temple in record time - just over 9 months.
I remember almost everyone who took part in the construction, together with whom we had a lot of sleepless nights worrying about the timing and quality. As a result, khurul opened its doors to the faithful December 27, 2005.

Special thanks - to His Holiness the Dalai Lama XIV, who at the beginning of December 2004, during a two-day visit to Kalmykia made a consecration ceremony areas, where less than a year and was built Europe's largest Buddhist temple, where His Holiness bestowed the name "Golden Abode Sakyamuni Buddha. "
I wish you all health and prosperity!

Kirsan Ilyumzhinov,
President of the International Chess Federation (FIDE)
