The offerings … and look at the size of the roasted pig. This was just one of the roasted pigs. If I am not mistaken, I think I saw another few more roasted pigs there.

This portion of the temple is where the snakes are kept or sleeping. They also created hand made giant snake to mark this year of the snake.

Penang – Visit to the Snake Temple (1)

Yesterday I dropped by another famous spot in Penang; the Snake temple in Bayan Lepas. There were prayers and activities happening there, and lots of worshippers and tourists seen visiting the temple.

I managed to capture some interesting pictures. Hope you enjoy them.

The entrance of the temple. A matter of fact the temple is smack in middle of an industrial area or more like the area was developed around the temple.

A short write up about the temple but it is in Malay language.

Chinese New Year decorations can be seen around the temple.
