Kek Lok Si

Today’s Photo

The Kek Lok Si temple is a large, sprawling complex just outside of Georgetown on Penang Island in Malaysia. It’s easily accessible by bus from Georgetown, although you’ll have to make your way through a narrow arcade lined with t-shirt and trinket sellers as you climb the stairs up to the entrance. It’s possible to climb to the top of the 7-tier pagoda where you’ll get magnificent views of the distant city. The temple is the largest Buddhist temple in Malaysia, so there’s plenty to see even if you don’t want to make the climb up the tower.
