Among the many unique attractions of the Dharmikarama Burmese Temple are the many statues of Buddha in different meditation poses, as well as mural depictions of Prince Siddharta’s journey to enlightenment. Mythical Burmese creatures are also featured in the temple, as they reflect the different cultural reverence to Buddha.
