Welcome to Buddhist Maha Vihara
The Buddhist Maha Vihara was founded by the Sinhalese community based in Kuala Lumpur and the surrounding areas in 1894 to provide a place of worship in their Sri Lankan Theravada tradition.
Most of Sinhalese were either traders or artisans and skilled workers brought in from Ceylon by the British Administration to develop the colonial Malayan Civil Service.
The Buddhist Maha Vihara was commonly known as the Brickfields Buddhist Temple for many years.

Thought of the day
DIFFERENT ATTITUDE OF THE HUMAN MIND
"Some persons are like letters carved on a rock,
they easily give way to anger and retain their
angry thoughts for a long time.
Some are like letters written in sand;
they give way to anger also, but the
angry thoughts quickly pass away.
Some men are like letters written in the water;
they do not retain their passing thoughts.
But the perfect ones are like letters written in the wind,
they let abuse and uncomfortable gossip pass by unnoticed.
Their minds are always pure and undisturbed."
Venerable Dr. K. Sri Dhammananda
