Musings on my life in Spain

Finding Inner Peace on the Costa del Sol
01 June 2016 @ 19:14

Are you looking to escape the crowded beach and find a sanctuary of peace, tranquility and serenity? Head into the hills near Benalmadena and you'll find the Stupa of Englightenment, a Buddhist temple some 100 feet tall, the tallest in the Western world in fact!

Inside you'll find the walls adorned with pictures of the life of The Buddha. Light a candle or an incense stick as you lose yourself in your thoughts, spinning a prayer wheel for good measure. Step outside and hear the prayer flags flutter in the breeze.

It's easy to find this haven of peacefulness. Just head to Aldi Benalmadena and it's a little further up the road, near the Butterfly Gardens.
