The temple was known as 'Nandy Moloh Burmese Temple' back in the 80's. It was founded in the year of 1803 and this makes it the oldest Burmese Buddhist temple ever built in Malaysia. It is the only Burmese temple located in Penang and so tourists flock to the temple to visit this preserved site every now and then. Not only an ordinary temple was this very temple awarded the first prize in Penang State Landscaping and Beatification Program competition dating back in 2001 with its green and tranquil environment.

The main attractions of the temple are the historical Pagoda, a 200 years old well and the huge all-marble Buddha statue. The temple is rich with history as this temple marks the occupation of the Burmese in Penang. There is also an interesting feature of the temple where paitings are hanging around through the walk way, explaining the journey of Buddha. Throughout the year, the temple organizes some activities and celebrates related festivals including Wesak Day, Water Festival and Festival of Light (Soon Dawgi). Activities carried out are Sunday Classes, Katnina and Meditation Classes, just to name a few.
