Palelai Buddhist Temple in Singapore is having their official opening of Phra Maha Chedi Dhammasathit (stupa).

Ven. Somdej Phra Yanvarodom of Wat Thepsirin, Bangkok, Thailand, will be the Guest of Honor at this ceremony. About 180 monks of the Theravada, Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhist traditions from Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Myanmar and Sri Lanka have been invited to grace this auspicious and joyous occasion.
