Tow Boo Kong Temple, B'worth

The grand entrance arch leading to the temple

The statue of a lion greeting visitors near
the entrance ofthe front prayer hall

A door general ('mooi sin') standing tall as soon
as you enter the front prayer hall

A large embossed painting of a 100 children at the inner

courtyard which is believed to signify the continuity of generations

A close-up view: The sweets are held close together
and resemble a cone, and are placed at the prayer altar

Date: 9th Oct '10 (Sat.)
Time: 8pm
Venue: Raja Uda, Butterworth (Pg.)

We finally made a trip to the famed temple in Butterworth, especially after seeing photos of the temples being published in articles and online forums. It was definitely worth the wait, as the temple is not only huge but looks grand from whichever angle you look at it.

It was initially intended to be a casual shoot (I did not even have a tripod with me at that time) but I am quite pleased with the outcome for most of the images here which were mostly shot wide open without a flash unit.

We enjoyed our ferry ride ( to and fro), and even lost our way momentarily in Raja Uda.
Well, it's these little (mis)adventures that bring a chuckle, whenever we cast our memories to that evening :O)
