Goddess of Mercy Temple - Kuan Yin Teng, Penang

The Goddess of Mercy Temple was founded around 1801, by early Chinese settlers. It features a sweeping roof with ornately decorated copings and ridges. Today, it is a very popular temple, visited by young and old alike offering sandalwood incense. Known to be the most popular temple in Penang, the temple is devoted to Kuan Yin or Goddess of Mercy.

Parked opposite the road, on Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling, and went for a brief walkabout with my Nikon D80 and Tamron 17-50mm lens.

Was greeted by this clan!
