Brief History Of This Temple

Founded in the 1920s, Wat Ananda Metyarama Thai Buddhist Temple is one of the oldest Thai Theravada Buddhist temples in Singapore. Originally situated at 83 Silat Road, it was renovated once in 1953 under the then abbot Venerable Phra Rajayankavee, with further renovations as well as new constructions between 1975 and 1997 under the present-day abbot Venerable Chao Khun Phra Tepsiddhivides. In the 21st century, the monastery underwent a major construction exercise which concluded with a brand new building at 50B Jalan Bukit Merah in 2014. On 5 January 2014, the new extension were officially opened by Indranee Rajah. The new building features a dhamma hall, meditation hall, cultural centre, conference room, dining hall, rest area, Sunday classroom and the monks' abode. The new Julamanee Prasat Theravada Columbarium was opened on 15 June 2014 at the temple.
