Built in 1803, this is the oldest Buddhist temple on Penang Island. Inside the temple, there are several statues of the Buddha and mythical creatures. We particularly liked the many paintings of Buddha's legends along the corridor of the temple. Temple also offers free readings.

No shoes, including socks, allowed in the temple. Being a religious building, sensible clothes are suggested, as a sign of respect. This means revealing clothes should be avoided.
