Kek Lok Si Temple

During my day trip to Penang, I managed to visit the largest Buddhist temple in Southeast Asia - the Kek Lok Si Temple, aka, Temple of Supreme Bliss.

Panoramic view from the temple.

It was indeed blissful when I got there on a Friday afternoon. Though it was my third visit, the temple has changed a lot over the years. This temple, staggered on the hillside overlooking the town of Ayer Itam, has been around since 1890, so it is a must-see when you're in Penang.

It was my good fortune to visit during this period when the corridors of the massive complex are strung with colourful red and yellow new year lanterns. It gets even more impressive at night when all 10,000 lanterns and 230,000 decorative light bulbs are lighted up for the Chinese New Year festivities.

The latest attraction is the Goddess of Mercy Pavilion which was consecrated on 6 December 2009. The pavilion, supported by granite pillars with ornate carvings, is equivalent to the height of a 20-storey building!
