This morning we went to the Thai Consulate to apply for 90 visa. We had 5 hours to kill waiting for our passports to be stamped, so we visited two nearby Buddhist Temples, had an early lunch, and visited the Penang Museum.
The Penang Museum traces all of the peoples and religions that shaped Penang. Buddhists from Siam and Burma, Hindus from India, Arabs and Jews (Bagdadi Jews), Indonesians (Acehnese, Javanese, Minangkabau), Chinese, Malays, and Europeans. There are Confucian, Hindu, Sikh and Buddhist temples, mosques, Catholic convents, and churches (the synagogue closed in 1976).
