Cheng Choo Tze-Batu Maung / 清珠寺-峇都茅.

PinYin:- Qing Zhu Si

Location:- Batu Maung, Penang / 峇都茅, 檳城州.

Also known as the Penang Bottle Temple.

A little further away from the previous temple, we a saw a little signage by the side of the road leading to this temple.

Situated on a much higher ground overlooking a large field, its surrounding is decorated with chinese medicated liquor bottles. Even the stair rails and part of the walls of the main prayer hall has these liquor bottles build in them. Not sure if all is empty but its definitely a unique site.
