Buddhist Maha Vihara information
Founded in 1894 by Sinhalese settlers, this is one of KL's major Theravada Buddhist temples. Meditation classes take place on Monday and Thursday at 8pm, chanting classes on Tuesday and Friday at 7.30pm. The Friday session is followed by a dharma talk at 8pm. Classes run on a donation basis. The temple is a particular hive of activity around Wesak Day, the Buddha's birthday, when a massive parade with multiple floats starts from here before winding round the city.
