GEORGE TOWN, Feb 11 – The 127-year-old biggest Buddhist temple, Kek Lok Si Temple in Air Itam, was transformed into a magical fairyland as thousands of colourful lights set the temple complex in Southeast Asia aglow for Chinese New Year celebration next Friday.

At exactly 7:50pm, about 20,000 traditional Chinese lanterns and thousands of modern neon and LED lightings were switched on simultaneously. To cap the magnificent evening, a spectacular display of fireworks lit the skies after Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng and the temple monks led devotees in a prayer session.

Seen as a symbol of peace, luck and prosperity, the lights at Kek Lok Si will be switched on daily until March 15. And from now till March 2, the temple will be open to the public from 8.30am until midnight, and until 10pm from March 3 to 15. On Chinese New Year’s Eve on Feb 15, the 125-year-old monastery will be illuminated all the way up to the 33.6m-tall Kuan Yin statue and pavilion. — PN
