Description

In Penang, the Snake Temple (Fu Xing Gong) is full of Wagler's pit vipers and tree snakes. Combined with the midday sun, the smoke of the always-burning incense leaves the snakes largely immobile. Snakes started entering the temple on their own soon after it was built in the mid nineteenth century, according to local folklore. You will also visit the on-site snake farm for a small fee, where possible.
