Bayan Lepas Snake Temple

Though all the snakes have been de-venomed and thick incense keeps them in docile state, visitors are strongly advised not to pick up any of the slithering creatures as their fangs remain intact. Curiously, the temple’s devotees continue to insist that the snakes have come to the temple on their own accord.

Penang War Museum

There are many interesting artifacts including artillery pieces and booby traps to uniforms and strategic maps. Some of the exhibits are found underground in what used to be ammunition bunkers.
