Work on a new Kedah Buddhist Association building near Alor Star, Kedah, costing about RM10mil will start early next year.
Kedah Buddhist Association secretary Ong Jin Peng said that they had already got the approval from the Alor Star City Council for the new building. “We got the approval in September 2003 to erect a new building at Mergong in Alor Star. The building is for our religious activities,” said Ong.
Ong said the building, expected for completion by middle of 2009, could accommodate more than 600 devotees.
“Our architect has designed a high-tech and environmental friendly building,” he said.
