Kek Lok Si Temple stays opens as repair work to burnt section starts

Repair work is ongoing at the mid-section of Kek Lok Si Temple where the fire broke out.

THE 130-year-old Kek Lok Si Temple in Penang is open to the public, except for the mid-section where one of the prayer rooms at the main shrine hall caught fire earlier.

Temple trustee Datuk Seri Steven Ooi Teik Heng said the public could still visit the enormous 30.2m-tall bronze statue of the Goddess Guan Yin and park their cars at the open air or basement car park.
