Penang Buddhist Association Revisited

Outside the main building is this well known pagoda with a moated pond that contains fish.




The Bodhi tree flourishes on the temple grounds in 2016.

My childhood memories of lotus bloom covered floors - tiles cool on the feet - remain intact.

The ceilings of the prayer hall are high, creating a much appreciated natural cooling effect.

Lights adorn the prayer area.

Cushions are stacked ready for use by devotees.

Candles are available for those wishing to add brightness to the occasion.


A peep to the outer grounds through a side window.

Mother of pearl inlaid on public use furniture echo the Chinese heritage and origins of the building.

The stair case that leads to to the upper floor but is now not allowed access.
