The construction of the Buddhist Culture Centre was completed in Grabnik in 2010 thanks to co-financing from the EU Fund for Regional Development. The building houses a multifunctional hall with audiovisual equipment, a library with a reading room and internet access, a terrace, as well as offices and toilets for guests. The building is adjusted to meet the needs of the disabled.

The Buddhist Culture Centre was officially inaugurated on 18th June 2010.

The event was officiated by Venerable Tenga Rinpoche and attended by His Excellency the Ambassador of India, the President of the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights, the Director of the Asia and Pacific Museum, the Mayor of Grodzisk Mazowiecki, as well as representatives of the Tibetan and Vietnamese communities in Poland and local residents.

The inauguration was accompanied by an exhibition of sacred objects, ritual offerings: the so-called tormas embellished with intricate, traditional decorations made from butter, and a picturesque dance of Shing Kyong, the protective deity of the Benchen Monastery.
