Находится на высоте немного далеко от города. Мы поехали на такси и подъехали с верхней площади сократив много ступенек. Это удивительно красивое место, рекомендую.Is situated at the altitude of a little far from the city. We went to the taxi and drove up to the top of the square reducing the many steps. This amazingly beautiful place.show original
A major tourist destination in Penang and a favourite for the locals as well. They light up the whole monastery at nights for one weekend a month. Fabulous sights and photo opportunities. This temple has been around for many years.
One of the iconic landmark of Penang that must be visited by the visitor who visit to Penang. A nicely maintained temple with cleaniness of the place and the retain of the original culture and it's heritage.
Cảnh rất đẹp.
I have mixed feelings about this place - religious figurines in cheap plaster and paints, covered walkways dotted with beggars and the usual tourist crap on sale. Not too sure whether it's a theme park or a place of worship. But most Westerners seemed to like it. Not my thing though.
Beautiful temple and even more impressive when seen from a distance. It does feel as though it was built only to have tourist visit than being authentic. A must see nonetheless.
