Malaysia - Air Itam, Kek Lok Si Temple

Greetings from Malaysia

Pagoda - (Penang Kek Lok Si Temple)

Built in 1890 on a hill slope, it is the largest Buddhist temple in Southeast Asia.  It consists of a maze of gardens, courts and passages and the seven tier "Pagoda of Ten Thousand Buddhas".  The 30 metre pagoda is a mixture of Chinese, Thai, and Burmese architecture.  The octagonal base is Chinese, the middle tier is Thai and the spiral dome is Burmese design.
