About The Temple
Sri Lankaramaya Temple at St Michael’s Road is a peaceful sanctuary situated in the middle of major roads. Built in 1952, this is the oldest Sri Lankan Theravada Buddhist Temple in Singapore.
With a Stupa, a Bodhi Tree, Buddha images, and a Sima Hall, the temple is considered as a complete monastery under the Theravada tradition. Other key features of the temple include a 45-ft reclining Buddha statue and a life-like effigy of the King Devanampiyatissa showing his reverence to Arahat Mahinda depicting how Buddhism arrived in Sri Lanka.
The main buildings of the temple include a three-storey office and library block, and a two-storey building housing a hall, a main shrine, and a stupa at its rooftop. Open space filled with greenery between these white buildings makes the temple an oasis nested in the middle of modern high-rise condominiums.
