Trip to Kelantan - Part 1

It's travel time!!!

I went to Kelantan last two years to visit some friends and attend a Leo Club function there. Together with 2 friends along, we went there for 3 days 2 nights.

Luckily, we were brought by some friends at there to visit Kelantan and basically, there are not much historical places to visit to. But still, we managed to visit some of the famous temples there.

Sitting Buddha, which regardless as the biggest Sitting Buddha in South East Asia. It is located at Tumpat, Kota Bharu.

韦陀菩萨 A devoted guardian of Buddhist monasteries

Buddha statue with 4 golden dragons which guarded around the corner.

The main entrance of the Sleeping Buddha temple


The most popular Buddhist temple in Kelantan would be the Wat Pothvihan near Cabang Empat, which houses the 40m long reclining Buddha (one of the largest of its kind in the world). Normally we called this as Sleeping Buddha Temple.

It is larger than the one Sleeping Buddha in Penang.

This statue is known as the longest sleeping Buddha in South East Asia.

A closer view for the Sleeping Buddha

Thousand-hand Guan Yin Temple just beside the Sleeping Buddha Temple.

Have a shot with Kelantan and Pahang friends before we left to another place. Thanks to Meng Zhen who guided us to there.

A Buddhist Bowl as roundabout for the temple

The remarkable Standing Buddha at Wat Laikatong, Tumpat. It is the tallest Buddha in Malaysia.

For tomorrow, I will post up for the trip to Batik Factory. Well, you will know on how to make batik at Kelantan. See ya.

I do consider all of the ideas you have offered
for your post. They're very convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are too short for starters. Could you please extend them a little from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.
