“Another beautiful Temple definately worth visiting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

This Temple has been enlarged since my last visit and the colours are still amazing. Photo opportunities at every turn. Don't miss going up in the lift to the bell tower to view the whole complex. A peaceful place and a must visit in Penang.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Yes it's impressive and expansive. Another must visit site and sight in George Town.

Temples on both sides of the road and both fall into that category.

“Calm atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Have been before, and decided to have another visit, has been improved since I was there a couple of years ago, new bell tower, and fish ponds. Nice to receive a blessing, in return for a small donation.

“Amazing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

Lovely temple with a lot to see. Very peaceful place on a busy street. Couple of people begging out the front but did not seem to be bothering anyone. Very ornate statutes with lots of gold and colour. Great place to take photos. Don't miss the paintings on the way in telling the story of Buddha. We managed to pick up a book on the history of Buddhism for a donation. We went about midday during the week and not to busy. This place is a must see in Georgetown - especially as there is a Thai temple across the street. Well worth the trip.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I visited here after visiting the Reclining Buddha across the road and I was awestruck. What an excellent attraction. Once again a most spiritual, uplifting experience. I am starting to think that Buddhism has a lot of appeal to my belief system.
