a god for all seasons

Whether you bat for Buddha, Jesus, Allah, Mohammed, Shiva or Confucius, there is a place of worship for you in Penang.  Ornate, smoky and gilded, with evocative names like the Temple of Supreme Bliss, they are both enchanting and obscene.  Is a 30.2 metre bronze statue of Buddha beneath 16 carved dragon pillars really necessary to find inner peace? All of this ornamentation and colour does however make for a beguiling photo subject.

Rather than waffle on with facts and adjectives, you can get more information about the religious and spiritual sights in Penang from the LP gurus here.
