Molilokayaram Educational Institute
As previously mentioned, this temple had been served as an elementary school for many princes of King Rama II during early Rattanakosin period. It also provided the Pali language teaching with oral examinations.
In 1991 Wat Molilokayaram was appointed to be the monastic educational institute with an aim to provide the education of dhamma scriptures of both Pali language and dhamma essence (Nakdham) and plans to supply very qualified Buddhist descendants. At present, although this institute is of medium size and generates 100-200 monks examinee to enter the annual central Pali-examination, it wins respectively the record of achieving the highest number of students passing the Pali-examination in Bangkok Metropolitan in 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and the outstanding students had received the administration scholarship.
At present there are altogether 20 teachers and 100-140 student monks/novices. The institute also provides Pali courses for students from other temples in Bangkok Metropolitan and upcountry. The Pali section has eight levels giving classes on Pali grammar up to the ninth level of Buddhist theology, while Dhamma section has three levels of classes, i.e dhamma scholar of the third, second and advanced levels.
The monastery has very limited space and facilities and needs to improve both classrooms and accommodations tremendously in order to cope with more than 200 monks/novices each year.
