Finding Buddha in Kuala Lumpur

Commonly known as the Brickfields Buddhist Temple, it was founded in 1894 by the Sinhalese community based in the areas surrounding Kuala Lumpur to provide a place of worship in the Sri Lankan Theravada Buddhist tradition.

It’s a fully working temple so you may see Monks around and if you go on a Saturday morning, like i did, you’ll most likely be the only tourist there. It also holds a Buddhist Institute Sunday Dhamma School to teach lay people about Buddhism.
