Burmese Buddhist Temple is one of the most popular among the myriad of Buddhist temples in Singapore, located near the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall. This place of worship is the oldest Theravada institution and the sole Burmese Buddhist Temple with traditional Burmese architecture in Singapore. The colossal temple is guarded by two lion-like figures, known as chinthes, along with a huge, pure white marble statue of Buddha, which is a sight to behold.
Also referred to as the Maha Sasana Ramsi, this marvellous structure is multi-storeyed with shimmering interiors and paintings depicting events from the life of Buddha. Various events are conducted at Burmese Buddhist Temple in Singapore throughout the year, including structured public programmes such as Dhamma classes and other religious festivities. The temple was previously located in Little India and was relocated to its current location in 1991. It is the uniqueness and dignity of the Burmese Buddhist Temple that has led to its recognition not only as a religious landmark but also as a national heritage site of Singapore.
