Nalanda Education & Outreach Centre, Sungai Petani
Nalanda Sungai Petani Branch
NEO Centre in Sungai Petani opened
Nalanda Buddhist Society inaugurated our third Nalanda Education & Outreach (NEO) Centre in Sungai Petani, Kedah on 11 December 2015. The centre was officiated by Venerable Bootawatte Sri Saranankara on 25 December the same year.
Sungai Petani is a rapidly growing municipality with the largest urban population in Kedah. The famed Bujang Valley archaeological site is just 15km to the north. The site was an important ancient trading post for the Buddhist Srivijayan Empire (7th to 11th Centuries CE).
NEO Centre Sungai Petani is strategically located near to a Teacher’s Training Institute and other institutions of higher learning. It provides another much-needed facility for undergraduates and Kedahans to learn Buddha-Dhamma in a holistic and systematic manner.
Kindly contact Nalanda’s Management Office at +603-8938-1500 to enquire about sponsorship and volunteering opportunities. Look out for updates on the centre at this webpage and on Facebook.
