Photographer's Note

Hi Friends,
I just back to my online world after celebrate Chinese New Year. I was visit to Penang during the CNY.

This photo is a bit dark because it was shoot at the evening and all these architectures are under the shade. Kek Lok Si - it is the most famous and largest temple at Penang Island.

The construction of the temple began in 1890 and was inspired by the chief monk of the Goddess of Mercy Temple at Pitt Street. With the support of the consular representative of China in Penang, the project received the sanction of the Emperor Guangxu, who bestowed a tablet and gift of 70,000 volumes of the Imperial Edition of the Buddhist Sutras.

Note update 2013 :-
Recently the temple are become more commercial as a tourism location rather than religious practice.
