FROM Buddha’s birth, renunciation, enlightenment to his passing away, devotees can view paintings that depict these historic events on the 8m-tall bell tower at the Mahindarama Buddhist Temple in Jalan Kampar, George Town.

The nine paintings are displayed to mark Wesak Day on Tuesday, and devotees and monks are also gearing up for the grandest celebration yet for the temple’s centennial celebration.
