Vesak Day

May

Vesak Day is the most important day in the Buddhist calendar, marking the birth of the Buddha. It is no surprise, then, that Singapore’s vast Buddhist community drops everything in order to pay their respects at local temples. Other activities include candlelight processions, statue bathing and releasing caged animals back into the wild.
