The minarets on the Islamic Mosques in Malaysia tend to be much smaller than those in other Islamic countries such as Turkey, which have tall thin minarets. The domes on this mosque are of a shiny gold.

St Anne’s Church in Bukit Mertajam, was started in 1846 and the church completed in 1888. A new church was added seen on the left, above, and opened in 2002 able to sit 1,200 people, which is by far exceeded on the feast of St. Anne., when many thousands of worshipers from South Asia flock to the church.

At this time I have not been able to contact anyone about the Hindu Temple.
