"Burmese Temple just opposite of Siamese Temple" Top 5 Page for this destination Burmese Temple (Dhammikarama) Tip by SLLiew

Burmese Temple (Dhammikarama), Penang: 38 reviews and 83 photos


When you are visiitng the Reclining Buddha, just walk across the road to drop by the interesting Burmese Temple.

You will noticed that facial expression of Burmese Buddhas are different, more serene in a sense. There is a giant standing Buddha in a beautifully carved wooden hall and with different Buddhas from different countries of Asia.

At the side of the main temple, is a temple roof which looks like a floating piece of cake. At the back, is a coin thowing whether you want "Success", "Happy Marriage", "Love" into a rotating bowls over a pond. Stand at nearest part of the pond but it is an easy miss.

Highly recommend to drop by if you are visiting the Reclining Buddha. Admission is free too but there is a solication of voluntary donation for building funds.
