Penang Gelugpa Buddhist Association information
This small Buddhist Temple , next to Loo Pun Hong, isn’t particularly impressive compared to Penang’s other religious buildings.

The Yellow Hats are a Tibetan order, and as such there are some beautiful Tibetan wall hangings in this temple that you’d be hard-pressed to find outside of a museum.
