A special exhibition on Wisdom Park was officially launched on Sunday 27 November at Nalanda Centre. The exhibition is held in honour of the first anniversary of Wisdom Park Development Committee (WPDC), which was formed in October 2015 and entrusted to conceptualise a “Master Development Plan” for Wisdom Park, reflecting its function as a national Buddhist education hub.

The exhibition chronicles the work of WPDC, including full-committee meetings, several site visits, and many sub-committee level discussions.  It also shows aerial photographs and surveys of the proposed site.  Much progress has been achieved in developing the “Master Plan” and we are ready to proceed with constructing the first building at Wisdom Park in 2017, a year ahead of the original schedule.
