It's No Wonder Kek Lok Si Temple is So Popular


The first of the buildings that comprise today's Kek Lok Si Temple in Penang, Malaysia was completed in 1891. Since that time, more structures have been added and others have been renovated. Sometimes referred to as the "Pagoda of Ten Thousand Buddhas", the temple incorporates three distinct architectural styles. The octagonal base of the temple is based on Chinese architecture, the middle tier is Thai and the temple's crown is Burmese.
