The Mystical Wat Siribunyamagaram (Tambun Siamese Temple) Hidden in Ipoh



The discovery of this hidden Siamese Temple was about a few months ago, when I was struggling with my studies and all. Not many people knew that I was suffering a bit from depression from a crazy bitchy boss! She was the sole reason of my hellish life I had for the past 4 years, sadly, I am still under her control. Hopefully, life will take a good turn for me (>_<). Perhaps, it is time for me to revisit this temple again, located in my beautiful hometown, Ipoh.

If you have followed my story, finally it is coming to an end. I made a trip back to Ipoh last week before my dissertation submission. Knowing the hurdle I gonna faced, I passed by this Siamese Buddhist temple which I known all my life. Yet, never step foot in it. But I am glad now I did. Walking around the temple and giving my prayers a bit. It actually calms me, as a Chinese descendant, a little blood of superstition still runs in the family. Anyhow, it gave positive energy to me. 📲🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷 #travelgoals #traveladdict #travel #travels #traveling #travelling #travelblogger #travelgram #ipoh #lonelyplanet #chinesetemple #picoftheday #ipohcityawesome #ipohcity #nofilters #Malaysia #siamese #cuticutiMalaysia #architecture #architecturephotography #architecturelover #architecturedesign #architectureporn #wanderlust #buddisttemple #instadaily #nofilter #instagramers #greatday #note5

Just an unexpected meetup which was delayed, I stumbled upon this exquisitely-built Buddhist Temple. The word "Wat" is often referred as the temple in Thailand, Cambodia and Laos. The word "Siribunyamagaram" is still a word, I can't make out of. Perhaps, I need a Thai friend to translate for me, whether there's meaning there. 


It was a Sunday, pretty much dead quiet, I walked past this temple. The strikingly-red entrance always caught my eyes; yet, my steps were never in until that day. To my surprise, the temple was actually to me, a fusion of local cultural and Buddhism.


The Chinese lantern at the main temple was far beyond unnoticed to my eyes. It wrote those prosperous phrases I often read during Chinese New Year. The temple was quiet, yet and the Siamese monks were actually chanting, which I did not disrupt their meditation. I just quietly walked in and prayed to the Gods, to hope for the best in life.  


From one temple to another, I gave my silent prayers. The golden statues seemed to respond my wish in a tranquility manner. I had not been praying that much. 


As my friend called me to inform me of his arrival, I was walking so stealthily, as if I would not want to intrude the peacefulness of the temple. It was then, I was relieved to have walked into this temple, to say my prayers.
