Photographer's Note

Penang as well as Malaysia are a giant melting pot of completely different religions as seen in this shot of a colorful South Indian temple and a simple Catholic church in the background.

Interestingly the tensions among the faiths are relatively minor in Malaysia. Religion certainly is a sensitive subject that can lead to racial tensions what Malaysia's government really tries to avoid. There also are plenty of interracial marriages, what helps greatly to calm what ever tensions may surface. To keep the calm and peace is very important to Malaysia's multi-racial and multi-religious population.
