Kek Lok Si, or Temple of Supreme Bliss, is the most famous Buddhism temple located in the Penang state of Malaysia. The 100+ years old temple is the largest Buddhist temple in Southeast Asia and a must-see for many visitors to the Penang Island.

Kek Lol Si is open for the public all the year around butĀ Chinese Lunar New Year should be the best time to visit because during this time hundreds of thousands of twilights are decorating the temple which once received the blisses of the Emperor Guangxu and Empress Cixi of the Qing Dynasty for the whole month at night.

On the fourteenth day of this Chinese New Year I had a chance to makeĀ a visit. Equipped my Nikon D90 with Nikkor 24-70/F2.8 and Tokina 11-16/F2.8 lenses, I photographed this fabulous Buddhism monastery.
