This society was established in the year 1968, in conjunction with of the completion of the construction of Rumah Berhala Hong Tien Tiang. This holy building houses a hall, which is an ideal place for everyone to pray and to learn how to pay salutations to the Buddha. Ven. Por Than Kren and Ven. Prak Bault jointly conducted the launching ceremony of the hall.
The number of participants has been increasing since early 1971, and it was thus decided that the “Dungun Buddhist Youth Circle” to be formed in order to attract more youngsters to learn the Dharma. In April of the same year, an organizing committee was officially formed under the leadership of Wee
