Penang – From the Kek Lok Si Temple down to the city.

We went back down the funicular to the city and walked around. Colourful streets, highrises, temples and traffic. A Unique mixture. The colonial mixed in with more traditional buildings and Hindu temples. McDonald’s looked like a temple to fast food!!

Kek Lok Si Temple in Penang the 36.57-metre-tall (120 ft) bronze statue of Guanyin (Kuan Yin), the Goddess of Mercy

The last part of the journey up the mountain was on a funicular. At the top was the 36.57-metre-tall (120 ft) bronze statue of Guanyin (Kuan Yin), the Goddess of Mercy.

In these days of wars and threats we sure need some Mercy!!
