This is the only Burmese Buddhist temple outside Mynammar and is located in the Georgetown area of Penang. Standing opposite to Wat Chayamangkalaram temple, this temple was built in 1805 and presents excellent decor and architecture.
Many statues of Buddha contributed by Buddha’s devotees, two Panca Rupa (guardian protectors of the world) images, which stand over a globe, add to the mystic effect of the temple.

Serene and tranquil. Look for the tortoises who are astonishing good at pretending to be statues. Darn things made me jump when they moved!
Heritage and historic. Would be nice if someone could walk you through the history and the symbolic meanings of the architecture, arts and motives
Interesting Temple with lots of art. The grounds are quite beautiful, and you can enjoy at a leisurely places there are not too many tourists. It is nice to walk around and look at the different motives around the temple. As previously mentioned there are a lot of burgers as you walk in to the temple. They have a nice turtle pond and a Wishing well.
It's worth getting out to have a look. I hired a bicycle and rode out. About 45 minutes if you're stopping to double check your position on Google maps. I have been told there is a bus that will get you out there in about 30 minutes. You'll have to look that one up though. Just tell bus driver to give you a call when the stop comes up. I really wouldn't recommend walking out there. It's really hot and you could really give yourself heat stroke. There are some resident beggars in the temple as well. It's your call but be prepared either way.
Amazing feel n energy. Awesome temple to meditate your worries away.
