We visited the Kek Lok Si Temple on the second day of our visit to Penang Island. The temple is situated in Ayer Itam, Penang. The road leading to the temple was narrow and busy as many stalls were set up on both sides of the road. We missed a turn leading to the temple grounds and had to turned back to find our way to the temple.
Kek Lok Si is also known as the "Temple of Supreme Bliss". It is the largest Buddhist temple in Penang and reported to be the largest in South East Asia.
