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.

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.
