Category: News — kamaruddin @ 3:58 pm

It’s sad news. Approaching the great Vesak (20/5), Vihara Avalokitesvara in Siantar was on fire due to electrical short last Sunday (11/5). It is one of the most admirable Vihara that has the greatest Guan Yin statue in South East Asia thus awarded by MURI (Indonesia’s Record Museum). Luckily the statue is still intact.

The incident took 7 lives; Monk Yu Chen, teacher Sudjat Widodo, Ai Cin & Ai Nie (siblings), Yie Ciu Hong, Dian Pirgunawan & Nizar (employees); and leaving several critical victims as reported by Harian Global.
