Was there for maybe 30 minutes. Worth a visit if heading to or from the airport. Not somewhere I would go out of my way to visit.

One and only temple with snakes in Malaysia. Still has its charm and attraction for tourists to Penang. Brought our friends from China to visit this temple for completeness.
