On Sunday 4 May, Buddhist Fellowship Indonesia (BFI) officially launched its new centre – the “BFI House” – in a delightful ceremony. Located in the North Jakarta District of Kelapa Gading, the 4-storey centre houses an elegant shrine hall, a multi-purpose room, and ample space for future office and library.

After 8 years of operating from rented premises, BFI has moved into their delightful and welcoming new centre located in Kelapa Gading District, North Jakarta.
