Penang – Kek Lok Si temple – Guanyin, the Goddess of Mercy – photos

She was big!! I mean big!

Opher's World

Having worked our way up through this huge temple complex we had to use a funicular railway to take us to the top.

At the peak was the giant statue of Guanyin, the Goddess of Mercy, in her pavilion, surrounded by statues of animals and fearsome guardians (who did not look quite so merciful).

Apart from the Goddess and her retinue, the views were amazing.
