The 65 storey KOMTAR is Penang's tallest landmark
Kek Lok Si is the largest Buddhist temple complex in South-east Asia.
The Penang Bridge links the island to the mainland (the second Penang bridge is under-construction and there is a new coming proposal in tunnel-under-sea)
Before the Penang Bridge was there, people used to take ferry to travel to/from the Island to Mainland which is still in uses today.
Chulia Street is a riot of colourful signboards.

Petäjävesi Old Church in central Finland, was built of logs between 1763 and 1765. This Lutheran country church is a typical example of an architectural tradition that is unique to eastern Scandinavia. It combines the Renaissance conception of a centrally planned church with older forms deriving from Gothic groin vaults.
This is a detail of the decoration of this old wooden church. The church is still in use during summertime, many couples want to be married there.
Love the matched stamp and card !!
