This marvelous edifice houses a 33 meter long statue of the Reclining Buddha. Behind the statue, which is awesome, are pigeon-holes where urns containing ashes of devotees are stored. A pair of stone serpents link the balustrades at the entrance to the temple interior and numerous statues can also be viewed in the grounds of the temple. A really exotic corner of Penang!
