Asam Laksa, I walked to Kek Lok Si Temple (also known as Temple of Supreme Bliss). The largest Buddhist temple in South East Asia, perched against a hill slope. Before walking further, I stopped at the "Pond of Longevity" to see the hundreds of tortoises set free by the devotees.
Then to the Pagoda of Rama VI - towering over one hundred feet and seven storeys high and viewed the collection of statues, the Laughing Buddha and other shrines in the main prayer hall. Next, I purchased the ticket for the funicular railway and there I was up at the hilltop.
Water pavilion, the Zodiac Garden and the memorial tablet at Kuan Yin Pavilion.
And finally, a wonderful panoramic view of the before returning to where I started.
