About Tham Wah Wan Temple

About Us

Tham Wah Wan Temple was co-founded by the four late Dharma brothers & sisters “Xu Yue Zhi”, “Cai Hong Qing”, “Koh Ben Ming” and “Wu Yi Hua”. The temple was built by Venerable “Ping Xian”, together with “Wong Pin Zheng” and “Teoh Pu Niang”.

In August 1993, Venerable Wei Wu gave a talk at Wisma Buddhist on “Rediscover the Love that is Lost”. During the Dharma talk, Master Wei Wu proves his compassion in action by making a commitment to establish a series of welfare activities for the needy in Kuala Lumpur.

The very next day, a group of Buddhist fellowship who were inspired by the talk met up with Ven. Wei Wu. They immediately establish a committee comprising a group of 9 members. It was led by the Penang Welfare team leader, Dharma sister “Mei Er”. After a series of discussions and brainstorming the committee formulated a programme which was to be started as welfare activities in Kuala Lumpur.

At the planning stage, Sis. Xu had kind-heartedly offered Tham Wah Wan Temple as the meeting venue for these Buddhist members. To express their gratefulness, the 9 members contributed their service, eg. cleaning up the temple and maintaining the compound.

With the positive contribution shown by the Buddhists members, and the recognition of Sis.Xu to the philosophy and conviction of Than Hsiang Foundation, she decided to hand over Tham Wah Wan Temple to Ven. Wei Wu. On 21st September, 1997, an official handing over ceremony was held.
