Walking Tour Through the Cultures of Penang
Part of what makes Penang unique is its established mixture of cultures and faiths, but if you are only in Georgetown for a short time, how can you experience all of its varied customs and traditions? Conveniently enough, Penang’s 18th-century town planners have already solved the problem, and a short walk along Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling (formerly) known as Pitt Street), also call the ‘Street of Harmony’, draws together the town’s four main religions represented by each house of worship and provides a quick, easy tour of its different communities.
- St George’s Anglican Church
- Kuan Im Goddess of Mercy Temple
- Sri Maha Mariamman Temple
- Kapitan Keling Mosque
