The Kek Lok Si Temple (Penang Hokkien for “Temple of Supreme Bliss” or “Temple of Sukhavati”; Simplified Chinese: 极乐寺; Traditional Chinese: 極樂寺) is a Buddhist temple situated in Air Itam in Penang and is one of the best known temples on the island. It is the largest Buddhist temple in Southeast Asia.

In 1930, the seven storey main pagoda of the temple or the Pagoda of 10,000 Buddhas, was completed. This pagoda combines a Chinese octagonal base with a middle tier of Thai design, and a Burmese crown; reflecting the temple’s embrace of both Mahayana and Theravada Buddhism.

Just a reminder to all of you. When you got chance visit this grand kuan yin statue, remember to look at the chest of Kuan Yin, see from side view. I heard people said there is a diamond on the chest of Kuan Yin. We only know this after we left, so no chance to see it.
