Shakyamuni Sambuddha Vihara was first established in 2002. Venerable Soma Thero's notion aspiration was, that one day the Vihara should become a center for Buddhist Education, Research, Information & Culture. It was his vision that this would not just be a temple for Sri Lankan Buddhists but, be a central point for all who wished to learn more about teachings of the Lord Buddha. Today, the Vihara is equipped with an international library containing a wide range of books about Buddhist philosophy, culture and other religions. Shakyamuni Sambuddha Vihara is also affiliated with to the Buddhist University of Sri Lanka.

Our History

In 1993 May 30th Buddhist Vihara Victoria was first established in Rich Street Noble Park Victoria as in a small 2 bedroom house. Instigated by certain comments from a member of the Australian Inter Faith group, Venerable Soma Thero recognized a need to establish a temple on premises that would enhance the image of Buddhism. As a result, in 1995 a five acre property in Berwick was purchased with the view of establishing a temple. In 2002, with the opening of the monk's residence the temple was moved from Noble Park to Berwick as The Sakyamuni Sambuddha Vihara.
