Sasanaramsi Burmese Buddhist Temple

The Sasanaramsi Burmese Buddhist Temple is the only Burmese Buddhist temple in Singapore. Also known as the Maha Sasana Ramsi, this temple is the oldest Theraveda establishment in the country, as its origins date back to 1875.

It isn’t only an important religious landmark in Singapore but has also been declared as a national heritage site.

Sasanaramsi Burmese Buddhist Temple, Opening Hours, Singapore

The temple was initially founded by a Burmese man named U Thar Hnin, and in 1907, a traditional Burmese healer named U Kyaw Gaung became its first trustee. U Kyaw Gaung tirelessly ensured that the temple saw continuous improvement and expansion. He is responsible for adding the temple’s major highlight – the biggest white marble statue of Buddha outside of Myanmar, which weighs a whopping 10 tons.

The temple also serves as a venue for many year-round activities and events open to the public, including Dhamma classes, meditation, traditional Burmese celebrations such as the Thingyan (New Year), and Chinese New Year, and other religious festivals, to name a few.

Since it almost entirely relies on donations, with a team of around 15 volunteers, visitors are encouraged to contribute to its upkeep if you feel inclined.

The Burmese Buddhist Temple is located at 14 Tai Gin Road, Singapore. Opening hours are 6:30am to 9pm daily; interested visitors should take note that shoes must be removed before entering the temple.
