The centre was established in 1999, and it was designed by Cristina Rocha Leiria, a Portuguese sculptor and architect, together with UNESCO. The intention of opening the centre is to promote mutual understanding and friendship among all civilizations and people. After all, it’s represented by Kun Iam, also known as Guan Yin to the Chinese, who is a deity that embodies compassion, mercy, and love.

Outside the Kun Iam Ecumenical Centre, visitors can admire the statue. Its base is shaped to look like a lotus flower. The amenities here include a Contemplation Room designed to provide visitors with a quiet space for reading, listening to audio, and understanding the many reading and teaching materials that are all dedicated to oriental thoughts. On the lower level of the centre, there is a multipurpose room and a library and media centre equipped with internet.

The facilities here are often used to host various cultural activities and film screenings, concerts, and conferences. Occasionally, there are art exhibitions that take place here as well. Meanwhile, there is a public art complex where individuals can learn about oriental and occidental schools of thought, though there is a focus on Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism.

All the activities here intend to share the foundations of these philosophies for the better understanding of all people and hopefully spread world peace.
