SJBA_Rd Bridge Opening 2One of the memorable achievements of the Association is the successful building of our present Vihara (Temple) in 1997 on a ½ acre land given by the Selangor Government. The Vihara has been well utilized over these years. However, it has insufficient space for its on-going activities. In recognition of SJBA’s exemplary contribution to the Community, the Selangor State Government approved another 5,000 sq ft of land next to the our Vihara for building extension. We plan to build a new 4-storey extension (with a basement) to house Sunday Dhamma School Classrooms, a Multi-purpose MeditationHall, a Senior Citizen Centre and a Dana Hall. With these additional facilities, SJBA aims to move to a higher level of service to the Triple Gem and to the Community.
