Wat Siribunyamagaram is a neatly maintained Thai Buddhist temple and monastery on Jalan Dihilir close to the heart of Ipoh City. The temple is known colloquially as Tambun Siamese Temple, being close to Tambun district (Jalan Dihilir becomes Jalan Tambun as you drive east).
Just inside the main gate is a hall with an intricate Thai style roof and traditional Thai temple decoration.
Inside is a golden seated Buddha statue.
The window shutters are inlayed with beautiful mother of pearl designs.
There are half a dozen or so Thai monks living here. They were very friendly and offered me some of their surplus food.
According to a poster, services provided to devotees at the temple include:
The main hall has an altar with a seated Buddha statue seated beneath a mural of a body tree.
The walls of the hall are lined with paintings of scenes from the life of Buddha. These paintings are sponsored by devotees.
A small seating area has a collection of books, CDs and DVDs on Buddhism which are available free of charge to anyone wishing to learn more.
