Kek Lok Si

Kek Lok Si which literally means heavenly temple is a Buddhist Temple sitting on the Crane Mountain in Penang Island, Malaysia. It is capped by beautiful blue skies all year round, and it gets to dress up in bright red lanterns during the festive season of Chinese New Year. This is the main pagoda of the temple- its architecture is a blend of Burmese, Thai and Chinese flavors.

One of my favorite shots- the floating lanterns which happily adorn the perimeters.
