Khoo Kongsi Penang Reviews
One of the hidden treasures of Penang Nov 15, 2012
Khoo Kongsi is a temple of the traditional Chinese religion in Penang. I am not completely familiar with Chinese religion, but I think worshiping the ancestors is part of it.
The building was started in 1835 and finished in 1906 with some restorations on 2006. It is located in the heart of the downtown of Georgetown, so it's not hard to find.
You will be thrilled by the magnificent golden and wood decorations inside and outside the building, the delicate inscriptions and drawings on the walls and the altar mount itself. Everywhere in the building is a delicacy to the eyes.
Also, you can buy souvenirs not only of this place but of Malaysia in general in the store. This place is a must in Penang.
Part of the Asia for the first time!! :D travel blog
