One of the finest Buddhist temples in South-east Asia, the Kek Lok Si temple in Penang stands majestically on a hill in Ayer Itam to the south of Georgetown. Built in tiers, the temple culminates with the beautifully crafted "Pagoda of Ten Thousand Buddhas". Taking more than 20 years to build, the temple is set against beautiful scenic surroundings. It features a turtle pond, gardens, shrines and beautiful sculptures.
Being a hotel in Penang that is located close to this destination, guests of PARKROYAL Penang will enjoy convenient access to this amazing landmark.
