In a place called Batu Maung, located in the state of Penang, Malaysia lies a Chinese temple known as the “Sam Poh Footprint Temple”. The temple was built only in 1993 and the local Chinese fishermen here are said to pay respects to the temple before going out to sea each day. Therefore, this temple is currently only 18 years old.
According to locals, the foot print which is stamped on solid rock is believed to be more than a century old. (Himanshu Bhatt-Neo Sentuhan)
