Tai Pei Buddhist Centre is situated at the junction of Kallang Road and Lavender Street, also commonly known as Gas works. This site was originally the premise of Kwang Fu Primary School which had a history of over 70 years.
In 1985, Tai Pei Foundation assumed ownership and named it Tai Pei Buddhist Centre. It serves to propagate the Buddha's Teachings and educate the general public.
For the past 12 years since 1990, Tai Pei Buddhist Centre has been propagating Dharma teachings, guiding our Buddhist youth, to interact with care for one another and to share their experiences in learning Buddhism.
In 1992, Tai Pei Foundation started the Tai Pei Child Care Centre on the Second Floor of Tai Pei Buddhist Centre. It is a non-profitable organization which has the objective of actualizing a set of management systems to provide a child care service that is suitable to the needs of our children. This centre is open to all children regardless of race, religion and language.
The Centre was officiated on 14 May 1994 by the then Minister for Labour and Second Minister for Defense, Dr. Lee Boon Yang.
