We came here because we visited the memorial nxt to it during our staycation hotel nearby.

The temple is pretty on the outside n well maintained. Inside is quite grand n "bling bling"...

Few devotees were noted on a PH morning.

Can come here for a visit on the elegance if this temple.

Maha Sasana Ramsi Temple houses the largest pure white marble statue of Buddha outside of Burma.
Be wowed by its beauty and size!

Devotees in colorful traditional dresses flock here every Sunday morning, bearing flowers and offerings.
To the local Burmese population, this temple is not just a place of worship but also for social gatherings.

The main prayer hall is located at the ground floor, but you can walk upstairs to the second and third floor for some quiet meditation.

Remember to show respect and take off your shoes before entering.

This was a pretty boring temple. It does not have much to offer; a tiny temple with not much to see. For sure, pass by if you are around but not a trip on it’s own.

Excellent if you like religious architecture. Dramatic colours and sculptures featured here. Very peaceful.

I stopped by to hear and watch the rituals and chanting, but I’m too much of a germaphobe tourist to take off my shoes in what appeared to be a very dirty place. So my view was distant and limited and probably should have spent my time better elsewhere.

Having been spoilt by a previous visit to many of the temples throughout Myanmar, this particular temple in comparison is but a very small local place where devotees are able to come and worship. It also provides instruction for any who wish to participate.
Much of the descriptions are also written in English, so visitors are able to get a good grasp of the significance of this temple and style of worship.

The Temple is not in the city center, it is situated in Novena but by MRT it does not take too much time to get there. You can get in just don't forget to take your shoes off. There is a big Buddha statue inside. In the temple yard you can meet Buddhist monks.

This is a really beautiful temple in a uniquely Burmese style; both in terms of architecture and statuary. It's only a short walk from MRT Novena, which gives you the opportunity to check out Novena RC Church, Loong Fatt's bakery, and the Dr Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall; all just a few steps away from each other.
There's a beautiful little votive marble statue of the Buddha just to the right of the entrance of the Temple. On the ground floor there's an amazing, enormous, solid marble statue of the Buddha, and be sure to go upstairs to see an even bigger gold statue of the Buddha. You'll be astounded. There's a constant flow of worshippers tip-toeing in for meditation, etc. and a number of monks quietly going about their tasks. Remember to remove shoes and socks and remain silent and respectful.

And wow, opposite is right.

The Burmese temple is very welcoming, with a steady trickle of local Burmese making merit and a random tourist making the most of the proximity with Sun Yay Sen's villa taking a photo.

If you go to the upper floors you will most likely be alone in peace.

So chill lah.

This is a Burmese buddhist temple. There is a nice Buddha statue on the ground flooor and also another one on the second floor. There are some very intricate carvings and ornaments on the walls and ceiling.

The temple is rather peaceful and well maintained.
