The Chinese FGS He Hua temple Amsterdam, which means lotus flower in Chinese, is the largest Buddhist temple of its kind in Europe.
The temple is built in the traditional Chinese palace style. The entire structure is composed of different symbols: the animals that can be seen on the roof represent the Chinese zodiac. The dragons must protect the temple and the district.
Taiwanese construction workers had come over to apply the special decorations.
The Buddhist temple is unique in Europe and is a place of pilgrimage for many Chinese.
Chinatown Amsterdam is unique: nowhere else in the world will you find a Chinatown where so many other nationalities are located in addition to Chinese people. Even the street signs in Chinatown Amsterdam are bilingual: Dutch and Chinese.
