BACKGROUND
INFORMATIONS
A place of serenity that invites meditation and much appreciation of the Buddhist religion, the Dharmikaramma Burmese Buddhist Temple is holds dear the image of Buddha in every corner. From the many statues of Buddha in different poses of meditation, donated by temple devotees, to the beautiful murals depicting scenes from the journey of Prince Siddharta before he finally became Buddha and reached the state of Nirvana.

Buddhist Temples in Penang welcomes visitors to explore the temple grounds. A temple visit is certainly an educational and pleasurable experience as it completely removes the visitor from the hectic tempo of the city and gives a good douse of good vibe and good karma during your trip to Georgetown.


The first Buddhist temple in Penang, the Dhammikarama Burmese Buddhist Temple was consecrated in 1805. One of two major Buddhist temples located within the Theravada Buddhist (mainly of Thai and Burmese origin) enclave surrounding Burma Lane, the Dhammikarama temple was built on land donated by a Buddhist devotee known as Nyonya Betong.


The temple is also the place to be, since many festivities such as Wesak Day and the Water Festival (known as Thankyan) are celebrated with worshippers young and old splashing water at each other and at passers-by in much the same fashion as the 'Songkhra' festival celebrated in Thailand.

As with the Mosques and Hindu Temples, be sure to remove your shoes before you enter the temple proper (just keep your eyes out for rows of shoes sitting on the steps leading to certain prayer halls and follow suit).
