Kek Lok Si Temple Chinese New Year Celebration

These are some photos I took over the last weekend in Kek Lok Si Temple. The best time to visit Kek Lok Si would be during Chinese New Year where lanterns and lights are put up to decorate the landmark. The temple would continue to be brightly illuminated for the next 30 days following Chinese New Year. So you would still have about another week left to visit the temple if you haven’t. It’s definitely worth visiting because this is a once in a year event and the entrance is free. Click on the photos for a bigger size.

I arrived at Kek Lok Si quite late that night at 9pm, so I didn’t have much time to take as many photographs compared to last year. The temple closes and turns off the lightings at 10pm sharp. So if you are planning to visit, the best time would be around 7pm. And bring a tripod if you have one, you will definitely need it.
