Wesak Day

This year Wesak day wasl on 17 of May. We visited the Buddhist Maha Vihara Temple in Brickfields in the morning. The traffic was really bad due to the construction of The little India project in the area.


Wesak day marks the birth, enlightenment and passing away of Gautama Buddha.

The Maha Vihara Temple was thronged with Buddhist devotees. Despite the hot weather huge crowd of devotees were queuing outside the Main Shrine Hall waiting for their turn for the prayer and blessings.

A statue of a golden Buddha was placed at the front entrance of the Asokan Hall to cater for big group prayers and offerings on this auspicious day.
