Kek Lok Si, 極樂寺

Lanterns and Pagoda
On the hillside of idyllic town, Air Itam, stands Penang's famous landmark, Kek Lok Si (literal meaning: Temple of Supreme Bliss). The temple is now more than 100 years old and is also the largest Buddhist temple in Southeast Asia.

The pagoda (as can be seen in this photo) - the main structure of the temple - houses 10,000 Buddha statues. During the Chinese New Year, the temple is lighted up with lanterns for 30 days (7pm-12am for the first 15 days; 7pm-10pm for the other 15 days).
