Arroio do Padre

Arroio do Padre is the name of the little town in southern Brazil where the Buddha House South (BHS) is under construction. Plans are for it to become a center for Buddhist teachings, Chinese Herbal Medicine and other mission work. (Joann put a description of the countryside in here).

BHS is located in the southernmost State of Brasil, Rio Grande do Sul. To reach BHS from Porto Alegre Airport take highway 116 south to the City of Pelotas. Then take highway 392 to Arroio do Padre. (fill this in right Google maps did not show all the roads you need to take. Discuss bus service too.)

No accommodations for guests are currently available, but if you want to help with the construction of the facility you may contact us at buddhahouseabadiania at and put BHS in the subject line.
