Admire the monumental architecture and calming interior of a long-established Buddhist place of worship at Dharmikarama Burmese Temple. Founded in 1803 by a wealthy member of the city's Bamar community, the building represents the only Burmese Buddhist temple outside Myanmar. Its particularly colorful and ornate exterior, conical tower, and square main hall distinguish it from other Buddhist temples in the country. Beyond its religious significance, it stands as a testament to a community.

  • Very nice place to visit, a bit difficult to find the toilet. I suggest u use the nice public toilet that looks like a container next to the entrance before you go in. It is much cleaner, it has nice landscape trees around it, just by the roadside. Just knock on the glass and ask the guard to let u in.
  • Friendly and peaceful ambience.
