Description

Tour to Places of Worship around City of Greater Bendigo

Date: Saturday 11 November 2017 Time: 11am to 4pm
Starting at 10:50am and returning at 3:30pm: Sacred Heart Cathedral, MacKenzie St, Bendigo

Bendigo is home to some of the most spectacular architecturally designed places of worship in Australia, including:

The Sacred Heart Cathedral in Bendigo: Constructed in the 19th Century and completed in the late 20th Century, it is one of the world's finest Gothic Revival cathedrals. The Cathedral is an icon of Bendigo and occupies a central place in the community for people of all faiths. It provides opportunities for tourism, the performing arts and many other avenues of community participation.

The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion: A Stupa is the most sacred monument in the Buddhist world. It is a symbolic representation of the fully Enlightened mind and the path to Enlightenment. As the sacred texts are the verbal expression of the Dharma, so the Stupa is its architectural expression. The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion, when fully completed, will be 50 metres (164 feet) square at its base and nearly 50 metres high making it the largest Stupa in the Western World.

Join us for a guided bus tour on Saturday November 11th to various places of worship around City of Greater Bendigo.
