"Kek Lok Si Temple" Negeri Pulau Pinang Things to Do Tip by moomoos

Negeri Pulau Pinang Things to Do: 24 reviews and 24 photos

Kek Lok Si Temple, built on a hill in Air Itam began in the year 1890 and took more than two decades to complete.

This is the largest Buddhist Temple complex in Malaysia and one of the finest in South-East Asia. And since it's renovation last year, it's looking even better.

On the steps up to the temple, there are stalls selling all sorts of stuffs (T-shirts/dress/batik clothing/ornaments/toys). It's good fun.

Address: Air Itam

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
