Australia: Arson suspected as Buddhist temple burns

December 31, 2012

Police suspect arson may be behind the blaze at Jamisontown, near Penrith, and Fairfax Media understands the building has been targeted by vandals several times in the past year.

The property, used as a Korean Buddhist temple for about two years, was well alight when emergency crews arrived about 2.30am on Sunday.


  1. That’s just tragic. Buddhism is a peaceful way of life. Surely whomever set it alight, mistook it for something else?
