When you visit the Chin Swee Temple at Genting Highlands, you will see this picture of the Wheel of Reincarnation.
According to certain faiths e.g. Hinduism, Taoism and Buddhism, the soul is immortal while the body is subjected to reincarnation and rebirth. Whether you will be reborn as animals, humans or gods will depend on the karma of past and present lives. This cycle of reincarnation or rebirth involves many lifetimes, sometimes as many as a few hundred lifetimes!
