The Situation of Monasteries in Rangoon before and after the Saffron Revolution

The Situation of Monasteries in Rangoon before and after the Saffron Revolution

It is learnt that before the saffron revolution of September, 2007, there were 29,658 monks living and studying Buddhist Scriptures at some 348 monasteries in Rangoon, and after that, there remained only 6391 monks at those monasteries due to a series of crackdowns of the military regime. The list of monasteries shown above was collected only within our reach and there may be others beyond our reach as well. The monasteries listed in the table are those where there are large numbers of monks living and studying Buddhist Scriptures.

(See details in the table)
