Wesak Day

Event Date
18 May 2019


Wesak Day is observed by devotees to celebrate Buddha's birthday, enlightenment and achievement of Nirvana. From very early in the morning, devotees flock to temples to meditate as well as participate in candle-lit processions. As a sign of benevolence, doves are set free and other charitable acts are also performed by devotees such as providing free vegetarian meals. The pinnacle of the celebration is in the evening where there is a procession of floats decked with colourful flowers and bright lights accompanied by children singing and monks chanting prayers while sprinkling holy water throughout the journey.

Starts at 6pm from Malaysian Buddhist Association
