39 Reviews
Chayamangkalaram Buddhist Temple (Wat Chayamangkalaram)
Characterized by glittering stupas and fearsome green dragons, the Thai Buddhist Chayamangkalaram Buddhist Temple (Wat Chayamangkalaram) is one of the most ornate in Penang. The temple’s extravagant exterior alludes to the giant reclining Buddha statue inside, whose position signifies peace and freedom from the material world. Opposite the Thai temple sits a Burmese temple of similar grandeur.

The Basics
A staple on many Penang or George Town sightseeing itineraries, Chayamangkalaram Buddhist Temple (Wat Chayamangkalaram) also functions as a place of prayer and worship. Go on your own for a more contemplative experience, or visit the temple as part of a guided tour that stops at several popular attractions, such as Kek Lok Si Temple (one of the largest Buddhist temples in Malaysia) and Penang Hill (Flagstaff Hill).

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Before entering the temple, cover your knees and shoulders, and remove your shoes.
  • Entrance to the temple is free; however, consider making a small donation to light a candle.
  • Chayamangkalaram Buddhist Temple (Wat Chayamangkalaram) is on the way to Batu Ferringhi, making it a convenient place to visit as you head to the beach.

How to Get There
Chayamangkalaram Buddhist Temple (Wat Chayamangkalaram) is around a 40-minute walk or 10-minute drive from the Love Lane area in central George Town. Bus numbers 101 and 103 also run regularly from George Town, and stop near the temple. To avoid the heat and the hassle of getting there on your own, join a tour with air-conditioned transport.

When to Get There
Chayamangkalaram Buddhist Temple (Wat Chayamangkalaram) is open daily between sunrise and sunset. To beat the crowds and spend some peaceful time exploring or meditating, arrive as early as possible.

Religious Harmony in Penang

Malaysia is renowned for its cultural diversity and religious harmony, and nowhere reflects this as well as Penang. Places of worship in Penang include Kek Lok Si Temple; the Hindu Sri Mahamariamman Temple in Little India; and Penang State Mosque, famous for its golden domes.
