Wat Nikrodharam

The Malaysian city of Alor Setar has a great temple to trek to, Wat Nikrodharam. It was built in 1968 in the regal Thai style, dripping in golden curves and rich illustration. No surprise at the influence, the temple is up north, near the border with Thailand.

The temple complex mostly serves the Chinese Buddhist community, with a sprinkling of Thais and Indians.

The main temple.


Getting creative in depicting the natural world, including 3D trees slithering along the wall painting.

Definitely a place for relaxed contemplation.

More details, a Wall Of Important People and the Big Buddha.
