Kuan Yin Temple, Penang
These large incense sticks outside this temple in Georgetown, Penang looked to me like large pink cigarettes! This is the Kuan Yin Temple and is probably one of the oldest temples in Penang. The Goddess of Mercy or Kuan Yin is perhaps one of the noticeable figures of all Buddhist deities in Penang today. She enlightened and embodies the attributes of benevolence and unshakable loving compassion that is accessible to everyone.
