It is also commonly known as the Brickfields Buddhist Temple. The Buddhist Maha Vihara’s growth and flourish over the past 50 years is attributed to the guidance and efforts of Ven. Dr. K.

Sri Dhammananda, who died on August 31, 2006 at the age of 87. On March 12, 2007 Ven K. Sri Dhammaratana was officially appointed as the Chief Sangha Nayaka.
