"See the overcrowded Turtle Pond" Kek Lok Si Temple Tip by DanielF

Kek Lok Si Temple, Penang: 75 reviews and 157 photos


After passing a number of shopping arcades with stalls selling souvenirs and clothes, you reach a courtyard with a pond where thousands of turtles struggle to get their small piece of land under the sun. Apparently, it is here that locals release their pet turtles when they grow too big or get tired of them.
