Penang Snake Temple
The Snake Temple is situated in Sungai Kluang, Bayan Lepas, Southwest Penang Island and is perhaps the only temple of its kind in the world.  The temple is filled with the smoke of burning incense and a variety of pit vipers. The vipers are believed to be rendered harmless by the sacred smoke, but as a safety precaution, the snakes have also been de-venomed but still have their fangs intact.  The temple honours a resident named Chor Soo Kong, who had healing powers. He was a Buddhist monk, who moved to Penang and sometimes gave shelter to the snakes from the jungle.  After the construction of the temple, snakes reportedly appeared by themselves.
