Kek Lok Si, or Temple of Supreme Bliss , is the largest and arguably the best known temple in Penang . It straddles a hillside overlooking the town of Ayer Itam and George Town beyond that. It is a temple that harmoniously blend Mahayana Buddhism with Taoist beliefs and other Chinese rituals, creating an amalgam that is uniquely its own. Since the olden days, the hills of Ayer Itam are regarded as important geomantically. Known as He San , or Crane Hill, they are recommended as a retreat for Taoist practitioners striving for immortality. The two star attractions of Kek Lok Si Temple are the Pagoda of 10,000 Buddhas and the giant bronze statue of Kuan Yin. The latest attraction at the Kek Lok Si Temple complex is the traveltips.com/goddess-of-mercy-pavilion_kek-lok-si-temple.htm" style="text-decoration: none;-Goddess of Mercy Pavilion , consecrated on 6 December, 2009,

A decent climb up the steps thru the markets to get there. Very peaceful once you get to the top and inside the temple, great views down over Penang.
Must see thing to do in Penang.
