Nalanda Building Progress – 140 days on

Despite the heavy renovations going on next door, Nalandian officers carry on with their duties resolutely. The office remains operational and serviceable.

Today marks the 140th day since the Nalanda Centre Building Expansion Project began.  Work is progressing smoothly on all levels, especially at Level 4 and the roof structure.  The Building Committee has indicated that Levels 2 & 3 may be completed earlier and handed over to Nalanda by mid-October.  This timely development will come in handy as Nalanda Centre will be hosting major events in the last quarter of the year, such as “Sangha Day”, holiday camps, members’ convention, and group visits.

A crane is used to lift metal rafters onto the roof. The new roof is scheduled to be completed this week.

Nalanda’s Building Fund still faces a shortfall of RM500,000.  We would like to appeal for your funding and support towards this noble project.  Donations and sponsorships of any amount are most welcome in the name of “Nalanda Buddhist Society”.

We thank everyone for your continued good wishes and support for the building expansion project.   We hope to complete this project safely, successfully, and satisfactorily.  With deep appreciation and mettā!
