Bronze Statue of Kuan Yin
The Bronze Statue of Kuan Yin Bodhisattva, the Goddess of Mercy, is another popular highlight in Kek Lok Si Temple. It stands above the temple. It was completed in 2002 and its protective octagonal-shaped pavilion was completed in early 2010. The statue is made entirely of bronze and is over 120 feet high. The pavilion is constructed of 16 dragon pillars that are 200 feet high all covered by an exquisitely designed roof that perfectly compliments the grandness of this magnificent statue.
The Kek Lok Si Temple is a Buddhist temple situated in Air Itam, Penang, Malaysia. It is the largest Buddhist temple in Malaysia. It is also an important pilgrimage centre for Buddhists from Hong Kong, the Philippines, Singapore and other countries in Southeast Asia.
