Amsterdam’s Chinatown is one of the most vibrant you’ll find on the continent and it’s also home to the largest Buddhist temple in Europe, which is impossible to miss. While trying to pick a good Chinese restaurant on the Zeedijk, why not take a quick peek at this interesting monument, but make sure to enter via one of the smaller side gates as the main gate is reserved for nuns and monks. Inside you’ll find a lavish interior with a statue of Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva and a shrine dedicated to the Buddha. Although the style of the building is completely Chinese, anyone is allowed to worship here and various events and celebrations are held throughout the year.
