There's a new Buddhist meditation centre in Bukit Mertajam and it's located at the foothills of the Bukit Mertajam hill. You can't miss this sign if you are on your way to the forest park.
I heard that someone had already allocated the land to build the centre and now funds are being raised to construct the buildings. Already, there are three small huts for sharing by the resident monks.
We went there this morning for a robe offering ceremony and found out that there was a food fair as well. Lots of people, I estimated well over a hundred devotees there.
