A Pagoda in Malaysia

Greetings from Malaysia

Pagoda - (Penang Kek Lok Si Temple)

Built in 1890 on a hill slope, it is the largest Buddhist temple in Southeast Asia. It consists of a maze of gardens, courts and passages and the seven tier "Pagoda of Ten Thousand Buddhas". The 30 metre pagoda is a mixture of Chinese, Thai, and Burmese architecture. The octagonal base is Chinese, the middle tier is Thai and the spiral dome is Burmese design.

This is postmarked in 2009 with a Malaysia bird stamp.
