Kek Lok Si Temple Private Tour
Kek Lok Si Temple Private Tour

Explore the architectural wonder of the majestic Kek Lok Si Buddhist temple perched on the hillside of Air Itam. Originally constructed in the 1980’s with significant ongoing enhancements since that time, Kek Lok Si has become one of the most significant and largest Buddhist temples in Southeast Asia. Standing at 30 metres tall, the bronze statue of Kuan Yin or the “Goddess of Mercy” is a marvel to behold.

She is protected by the Goddess of Mercy pavilion, a striking 83 metre tall pagoda (equivalent to a 20-storey building). Another main attraction of Kek Lok Si is the stunning seven-storey Pagoda of Rama VI, or “Pagoda of Ten Thousand Buddhas,” which is home to 10,000 alabaster and bronze statues of Buddha.
