Noon At Kek Lok Si Temple

One find noon in Penang, mom and I went to Kek Lok Si temple to do something, I followed along to snap some photos as I haven’t been there in bright daylight before. It seems fun, but it was a short trip up there. Kek Lok Si temple is one of the most famous and gorgeous temple in South East Asia and it’s a good place for photoshooting.

It was a bright and sunny day, yet there’s a little windy breeze blow as the Kek Lok Si temple is located a little bit high from ground level. I saw quite many foreign and local tourist checking out the place and take photos.

Ever since Penang has got the UNESCO World Heritage City status, more and more tourist are flocking into this little so-called “Pearl Of The Orient” for its lovely heritage town and of course the famous food.

Kek Lok Si Temple is one of the place that you must not miss when you are visiting Penang. Doesn’t matter if you are Muslim, Christian or other races, it’s good to check out the architecture, culture and art of this temple.

Kek Lok Si Temple is not a small temple, it’s huge and have several sections for you to visit and explore. As for me, I only went to the main hall and didn’t went UP to other area as it takes like an hour and more if you are an avid photographer. We were there to do some stuff at the main hall.

Nevertheless, it’s still nice to move around at the main hall area to take some shots. Parking is RM2 at the entrance of Kek Lok Si which is rather cheap as you can park as long as you want.

One thing I dislike while checking around the place is I saw this zinc roof with shape into Chinese-style roof. It makes the place so cheap-looking and lousy. Instead I think they should just replaced with it better ceramic roof which resembles a real Chinese temple architecture. =)
