Tens of thousands of lights and lanterns on Penang’s popular 125-year-old landmark will once again be on full display this Chinese New Year season. The ‘Temple of Supreme Bliss’ or better known as the Kek Lok Si Temple will commence with its temple-lighting ceremony four nights before the first day of Chinese New Year, and will continue to be lighted up every night for a month.
This annual tradition draws thousands of visitors and devotees each night where they can offer prayers and offerings or take a tour around the brilliantly-lit temple. It is also very popular among shutter-bugs. During this period, some devotees make a special donation and register to have a lantern with personalized messages and well-wishes lighted for peace, luck and prosperity.
