A few km southwest of Georgetown lies the Kek Lok Si Chinese Buddhist temple. It is actually more than just a temple - Kek Lok Si is a complex of several buildings extending spread over 12 hectares on the side of a hill. Kek Lok Si is not just a beautiful temple and major tourist attraction, it is also a major worship centre and the largest Buddhist temple in Malaysia. Construction of the temple started in 1890 with funds provided by the wealthy Chinese merchants community of Pinang.
