Kek Lok Si Temple

This 19th-century temple is an important pilgrimage site for Buddhists across Southeast Asia. Visitors begin at the seven-tier, 30-meter-tall (98-foot-tall) Ban Po Thar, a tower designed in Burmese, Chinese and Thai styles. Throughout the temple grounds are thousands of gilded statues of Buddha, but most impressive is the 30-meter-tall (98-foot-tall) bronze statue of Guanyin, the goddess of mercy.
