Trip Report by Cameron McMillan September 2000
Visited Penang last year and found the people fantastic, very helpful and most all spoke perfect English. I enjoyed the Hindu Temples very much especially in the evening. So atmospheric when there is a thunderstorm and the pujaree is doing sermon and the smell of incense flowing thru the air. I especially enjoyed the Hindu temple to Mother Earth and Ganesha (always a favourite of mine-house named in respect of him). I visited the large temple east of Penang Street the grounds are large and beautiful. Of all of the religions in the world I find Hinduism very humbling and most friendly to other religious followers. Such as nice all round cosy feeling created by this.
