Astoundingly setting a record to be the only Burmese Buddhist temple built outside of Myanmar in traditional Burmese architectural style, this Burmese Buddhist Temple (BBT) which also known as Maha Sasana Ransi, is home to the largest pure white marble statue of Buddha outside of Myanmar. Being one of its kind, BBT was founded in 1875 by a Burmese man named U Thar Hnin at Kinta Road. Later in 1878, he donated it to U Kyaw Gaung, a traditional physician, who introduced the most ancient branch of Buddhism called Theravada to this land. Undaunted by the lack of funds, he pledged himself to acquire a sizable marble Buddha statue like those seen in Myanmar. Thus, he began to pursue it!
With funds collected from his earnings and public donations, he went for several trips to Myanmar, where he sighted an enormous piece of marble in Sagyin Hill. This piece was brought to Mandalay, a city well-known for its craftsmanship. Hence, a Buddha statue of 3 meters tall was sculpted and completed in 1918. After the immense and strenuous labour across 2 500 kilometres of land and sea, the statue was successfully transported to Singapore despite the lack of modern transportation and heavy machinery. Over the years of colonisation, relocation and continuous effort to rebuild, BBT was completed, and gradually it flourished to be not just a religious landmark, but also a national heritage of Singapore.
Thriving with the continuous donations and contributions from the public, BBT can actively conduct annual events and structured programmes for the public throughout the year. BBT offers Dhamma classes, religious festivals and traditional Burmese celebrations, for instance, Chinese New Year, Water Festival (Thin Gyan), Myanmar New Year, Vesak Day and so many more. For your information, this temple opens daily from 6.30 am to 9.00 pm. The entrance is free of charge. Come and stop by to enjoy the splendid splitting image of Buddha and the greatest ancient Burmese architecture here. You may also receive blessings from the monk of this temple if you want. But one rule of thumbs you do have to take seriously is to be sure to take off your shoes before entering the temple.
Keep in mind that as a holy place, you should pay attention to what you wear when you visit the temple. Avoid wearing shorts, tight pants, leggings, or any clothing that shows too much skin. It’s the etiquette that all visitors should obey.

You can hail taxis at the official stands or booking beforehand which is extremely a life saver! But bearing in mind that booking fees are applied. Else, rest assured that MRT stations too offer SMRT taxis services.
