Every year, during the Chinese New Year festive period, the famous and iconic Kek Lok Si temple will be illuminated to celebrate the festival.
This year marks the 6th Ban Ka Lan Chinese New Year celebration at the Penang Snake Temple.
The Ban Ka Lan (or Flame Watching) festival is held annually during the Chinese New Year period, as a ceremony to predict the year’s economy by observing the intensity of the flames during the ritual. The festival is also held to celebrate the birthday of the deity of the snake temple, Cheng Chooi Chor Soo Kong.
Various murals and artworks painted by local artists which depict the old days of Butterworth, where local sea trade and fishery economy are the history of the area. This art alley can be found just across the street from the first Butterworth Art Alley.
A new addition to the heritage of Butterworth, this large mural is painted by local artists (Zart Zaini and Kasturi Studio) featuring the old Butterworth. Titled “Mural Warisan”, it showcases the original scene of the old shophouses that existed in the 1950s before the current high rise building was built.
The area was used to be an empty land that traders gathered for goods coming from the nearby old jetty. This art work can be found at Jalan Jeti Lama, Butterworth.
