Penang’s Iconic Temple – Kek Lok Si
Kek Lok Si Temple has been identified as one of the largest and finest temple complexes in Southeast Asia. Kek Lok Si Temple itself has always been a tourist attraction in Penang but the annual display of lights is even a bigger crowd puller, attracting tourists from all around the world and locals as well.
Every year, Kek Lok Si temple will be lighted few days before the first day of Chinese New Year and will continue to be lighted up every night until the 15th day of Chinese New Year, or known as Chap Goh Meh. The lighting of the temple symbolizes peace, luck and prosperity.
