Inclined Lift @ Kek Lok Si Temple

In order to reach the bronze Kuan Yin statue at Kek Lok Si Temple in Penang, visitor will have the chance to ride on the 1st inclined lift in Malaysia.

The lift is operational from 8.30am until 5.30pm everyday. Visitor have to queue up for their turns as there are only 2 lifts available.

The ride isn't free as it cost RM4 for adult (2 way) and half of that cost for children. All the collected money will be used for temple development and maintenance.

Visitor could actually walk up as there are stairs are available alongside the rail guide of the inclined lifts. However, the entrance to the walkways are locked. Hence, visitors are left with little choice but to take the lift.

To operate the lift is rather straight forward. Just up and down button with an emergency button in case something went wrong.

The inclined lift offers a nice view of the surrounding and it takes roughly 1 minute to reach its destination.
