Discover the profound knowledge of Buddhism through the Enlightenment Stupa of Benalmádena. Buddhism was born in the hot plains of Northern India more than 2550 years ago. In the 7th and 8th century it was introduced to the lands of the majestic Himalayas, to the people of Tibet, Bhutan, Nepal, Sikkim and Ladakh who since then had focused their lives on one aim: to attain enlightenment. In the early seventies of the 20th century, the profound teachings of the Buddha have started to expand from the lands of sacred mountain peaks, pristine lakes, great meditators and countless Stupas to the Western World.
