The symbolic and unique characteristic of Kek Lok Si is made well known not only to locals but also to the mass population of Malaysia. It is like a name that closely related to history of Penang as a whole. Right now, it has becomes one of the top tourist attractions in Penang that is frequent by travelers all around the world.

The temple is a focal point of festivals of the Chinese community in Penang. The Chinese New Year celebrations are particularly impressive. For 30 days following Chinese New Year, the temple remains open until late at night whilst thousands of lights turn the scenery into a sea of light! This is the period where the whole temple is filled with beautiful lantern that light up the hills during the night. It is like you are in a city that comes alive during the night.
