“Worth visit temple”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

A temple just located opposite the Wat Chayamangkalaram. The temple is quite big and if not mistaken the temple is almost 200+ years since 1805. You could find there is beautiful backyard and interesting Bell Tower inside the temple. It is a good place to calm your mind through the peacefulness and contact with the natural such as watching the eagles fly high in the big blue sky by chance, looking at the beautiful garden with plenty of plants and some birds. A great place to spend some time with. ;)

“Beautiful and peaceful”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

I visited it during the Penang Water Festival, really funny, everybody having fun in this temple!
on the other hand some place were really quiet and interesting to see. it's quite far from center because of the jam, but there is others temple near this one, so you can spend many hours in this street.

“Short stop to enjoy George Town”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Located in Jalan Burmah, whenever you want to see others than old houses try to see different things such as this temple. Good spots for taking pictures and the temple is quite well maintained.
Love to see its brightness of reds and golds. Respect those visitors who intend to pray.

“Very nice, airy and clean”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

I liked this place far more then the Thai temple opposite, even though I live in Thailand. It is approached by walking under a covered walkway, ans on each side are pictures of the Buddha's path to enlightenment - very interesting as it taught me a lot more about Buddhism.
The whole temple area was clean, light and airy and there was plenty of shaded areas - it was a blisteringly hot day!
Monks are in attendance for devotees to make merit to, and there was less of the 'pay for everything' that I found at other temples.
