St. Louis, MO –

Area Buddhists and others who are curious to learn about other religions will be able to see rare Buddhist relics in St. Louis this week.

Don Sloane worked with the local Buddhist Council to have St. Louis included as a stop on the tour before the relics are permanently enshrined in a 500-foot statue being built in northern India.

The relics will be on display at the Thai Temple on Tuesday, at Washington University on Wednesday and at Webster University on Thursday.
