Snake Temple

Snake Temple

On our last day in Penang, we had our driver takes us to the Snake Temple near the airport. It is not an attraction I would normally see, but hey, it’s on the way and we have the time. We pull up to the front of the temple, I get out of the cab, enter (after removing my shoes) and ask John “where are the snakes?” He replies, “right in front of you,” pointing at a small set of branches on the altar table. I look up and indeed four vipers are curled around a wooden post, right above my head. John assures me they are fed well and generally, don’t eat tourists. It is an interesting wrap up to Penang – city of many surprises.

Swirling snakes above my head!
