Must to visit place in Penang. Can feel Calmness and divine. Nice Buddhist temple near to Gurney. Lot of photos and sculptures about Gauthama Buddha.
Burmese buddist temple with a big buddha at the main hall. Located right opposite the thai temple, this is also a beautiful and peaceful temple, do dress modestly for visit. A popular place of worship for the locals and tourists, Beware of pickpocket and shoes stealer, and be mindful of your own belongings at all time. Remember to remove your footwear before entering the prayers hall.
Lovely retreat of calm oposite the glitzy Thai temple A great place to spend 30 minutes or longer if you want to take advantage of the meditation hall (1st photo)or even quieter pagoda (with a Japanese lift to the 3rd floor) to meditate or just reflect on life. In the main meditation hall there are always a couple of friendly monks as well as lots of free books of Buddhist teachings in Chinese and English and I guess Burmese / Myanmareeeese? Good views from the 3rd floor of the pagoda as well as a moving set of wishing wells to fling coins at (2nd photo). Lastly there are some beautiful paintings of Buddha from religious mythology and some 3D art where if you stare long enough at the image og hundreds of Buddhas - a beautiful 3D image of the Buddha appears. Well worth a visit.
So beautiful! The standing buddha statue is so fantastic. One of the most beautiful i have ever seen.

Quiet in the afternoon after the tourist busses are gone. Friendly monks. Good place to meditate. The large Quan Yin is beautiful.
This is a Burmese style Buddhist temple. This temple is opposite the Thai temple. The place is not at big as the Thai temple. As there are many visitors, please be careful of pickpockets and theft of shoes. Dress modestly to visit. Ignore the beggars “manning” the entrance of the temple. Please be careful of your belongings and have a peaceful trip.
Amazing craftsmanship! You can pray to Priestess to get bless. You can take a lot picture here.
Buddhist temple in Myanmar style. Remember you need to take off your shoes. Worth visiting to see the Penang version of Burmese architecture and statues.
A beautiful temple with a lot of culture. It was quite unlike any of the other Buddhist temples I've been too. The monks were super friendly, as well. A must-see in Penang.
A very big temple. Not much crowded usually. There is a winch that takes you to the top of the temple. There is a separate charge for the winch and there is usually a wait of around 20-30 mins for it. The view of the while city from the top of the temple is very good. There are many small shops on the way to the temple and even in the temple premises.
This very accessible temple was created in 1803, and has many interesting, complex and intricate teak carvings, paintings on panels, several large Buddha statues as well as beautiful grounds and two fish ponds. The temple has 4 or 5 substantially different components, which display different aspects of "Burmese Buddhism"!! Overall, it is a very calm and "cool" place to reflect on what one has seen as well as one of the many traveller's treasures that one can experience when visiting in Penang.. It is a "Must see"!!
