THE SNAKE TEMPLE

The Snake Temple, often known as “The Pure Cloud Temple”, houses the image of Chor Soo Kong. According to legend, the image, which was brought to Penang over a century ago, manifested strong healing powers. It cured an early settler, David Brown of Glugor Estate, of a mysterious illness and in appreciation, he donated the land for the temple which was built through public donations. When the temple was completed, the snakes came and took refuge in it.
