A historical drawing (1840) of Hosheutovsky khurul, that was constructed during 1814-1818.
Located on the eastern edge of Europe, the Khurul's architecture is a mixture of oriental and western styles.
Now this is the oldest Buddhist temple in Europe.
The second oldest in Europe is the Buddhist temple in Saint Petersburg, that was constructed in 1915. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datsan_Gunzechoinei
