Amaravati is a Theravada Buddhist monastery at the eastern end of the Chiltern Hills in South East England. Established in 1984 by Ajahn Sumedho as an extension of Chithurst Buddhist Monastery, the monastery has its roots in the Thai Forest Tradition.
Gates open from 6.30 am until 9.30 pm.
Come for a few hours or for the day; others stay for a weekend, a few days, or longer. Perhaps they bring an offering, or want to learn meditation, or to have a time of refuge from the stresses of the world. An environment that encourages peaceful reflection.
