Buddhist Maha Vihara

Lake Gardens, Brickfields & Bangsar

Founded in 1894 by Sinhalese settlers, this is one of KL's major Theravada Buddhist temples. It's 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.

Meditation classes take place on Monday and Thursday at 8pm on a by-donation basis.
