Other Penang Photos

Here are a few other photos from our last day in Penang. I’ll keep the descriptions to a minimum.

FloatingMosque
The so-called Floating Mosque. It’s a mosque built upon pillars so that it is over the water. The caretakers were open to visitors, and, consequently, this was the first mosque in which I had entered the prayer room (which follows).

PrayerRoom

RecliningBuddha
Reclining Buddha (Thai Buddhist temple). The most interesting thing about this building (other than the giant Buddha) was that it also served as a mausoleum. Thousands of urns with ashes line the four walls and the room beneath the Buddha.

Monks
Thai Buddhist monks asking Kate for money.

CatWallMural
Street art photo from the evening before. Taken with a flash at night, but enhanced in Photoshop. You may notice in the post done a few days before that the other artist was playing off this image in his piece of street art.
