The Sinhalese community founded the Buddhist Maha Vihara in 1894. It is based in Kuala Lumpur and the establishment is to provide a place of worship for the Sri Lankan community who practices the Theravada traditions. Most Sinhalese were either traders or artisans or skilled workers brought in from Ceylon by the British Administration to develop the colonial Malayan Civil Service. The Buddhist Maha Vihara was commonly known as the Brickfields Buddhist Temple for many years.
