Penang Kek Lok Si Temple @ Night, during Chinese New Year


With all the ruckus in the Chinese Media about Penang Premier Temple and Tourist Site, Kek Lok Si Temple being lit up for the New Year, I just could not resists it, I Headed for Ayer Itam after dinner on the First Day of the New Year, and snapped this shots, some from a secret location, the other along the Ayer Itam Road. Unfortunately I could not find a place near enough to face the Kuan Yin Statue Face on.

A number of Photographers also turn up to snap the photos. When the temple is lit up, the effect is out of the world so to speak. Powerful, a Icon to Penang. In fact they should do this nightly, or at a minimum every weekend. Tours should be organise to bring tourist in at night, not just in the day time.

It was worth the trip especially there was not too much traffic around this Chinese New Year.
