For me, this was the most interesting George Town temple among the several we visited. Standing Buddha is stunning, and it's a quiet, peaceful place.

No shoes, including socks, allowed in the temple. Being a religious building, sensible clothes are suggested, as a sign of respect. This means revealing clothes should be avoided.
