Leong San Tong Khoo Kongsi - 2

Open from 9 to 5 daily, the Khoo Kongsi entrance at Lebuh Cannon can be easily missed, owing to being sandwiched by a number of shops on either side. It enjoys the reputation of being the grandest clan temple in Penang, if not in all of Malaysia. Not surprisingly, it is a famous spot for tourists to visit, as can be seen by the trishaws that have just brought in a load of them. There is a small admission fee, well worth the time spent inside.

Certains sont bien décorés avec toutes ces fleurs.
Ayush Basu: Indeed they are, Martine. These are some of the more "jazzed" up trishaws.
lively and colorful scene...
Ayush Basu: I had to stop and shoot these colourful vehicles, Larry.
I just love all the color!
Ayush Basu: All "jazzed" up trishaws, Elizabeth!
Very nice.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Michael

I love trishaws [called Samlors = 3 wheels in Thailand], and am considering purchasing one, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Knowing you, I am not surprised, Ray. They are present in India too and need a bit of effort to overcome their inertia.
Looks like a great meeting spot, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: They are waiting out of the sun for their respective passengers to be on their way, Ginnie.

This is a great place to wait for the tourist coming back. Love the colours here.
Ayush Basu: These are some of the more "jazzed" up trishaws, Astrid. Yes, a quiet space to dry off the sweat from their backs and smoke a cigarette.

Interesting that it doesn't look so grand outside Ayush
Ayush Basu: My apologies that I did not sequence this shot well - the portions seen at the rear are not related to the main temple building, Chris.

this is a very cool picture! i don't think i have ever seen that mode of transportation in person smile
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Elaine. Yes this would not be seen in your part of the world, except perhaps a thing of joyride?

This looks like a remake of the old Le Mans style racing start Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Ahh, I see the similarity, Chad.

Nice to see this human element, Ayush
Ayush Basu: I thought this had to be captured, this has disappeared from Singapore and in this part of Penang, it survives solely for the tourists in a much reduced scale, Lisl.

A wise man from the east standing there to the left. Everyone's attention is with him.
Ayush Basu: He is the only with a cigarette lighter, Louis. No, I made that up tongue
I'd like a ride in one of those, although I can imagine the surrounding traffic would be a bit scary.
Ayush Basu: They are seen in the Georgetown area of Penang, which sees mostly pedestrian traffic and automobiles if any, will slow down. I think it would be a fine way to see this part of Penang Island, Brian.
I like the relaxed scene here with everyone on break.
Ayush Basu: Yes, I liked it too, Mary. I am pleased I got this.
Pollution free taxis!
Ayush Basu: And all "jazzed" up too, Bill.
Interesting... We call these rickshaws here... smile
Well composed, Ayush... smile
Ayush Basu: Yes, and they are the other way around, Sudipto. Thank you.
Nice shot, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Frank.

Very bright and colourful.
Ayush Basu: These are some of the more "jazzed" up trishaws, CherryPie.
Great shot, Ayush!
