Wesak Day is one of the most important days on the Buddhist calendar. It is a day to celebrate the birth, the enlightenment and passing of Lord Buddha. Although Wesak Day (also Vesak or Vesākha) is celebrated by Buddhists around the world, the actual day it is celebrated varies from country to country, though it usually falls in the month of April or May.

This year, Wesak Day falls on 17th May, 2011. It is a public holiday. I went to Wat Siribunyamagaram, the huge Thai Buddhist temple along Tambun Road in Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia, to pay homage to Lord Buddha.
