Accommodation and Fees
Options for sangha, students and visitors.
We are in the process of updating our donations and prices. Nalanda has been suffering, like all other organisations, with the
increase of prices and the high inflation. Nalanda hasn’t raised its prices in the last years, but right now we are obliged to slightly
adjust them. These prices have no intention to be a source of profit for the monastery but to simply cover the basic costs like electricity, taxes, insurance, food, heating, gas, etc.
We hope to be able to update them soon meanwhile please take the following ones as an example from the past year:
