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.
