Malaysia Chronicles Six: George Town’s Heritage Buildings

Tuesday, October 5, 2010



Within a few blocks from our hotel in George Town are these buildings that depict Penang’s cultural heritage. This collection of historic architecture--ranging from mosques, Chinese clan houses, churches, Hindu and Chinese temples to a fort, clan jetties, mansions and Victorian government buildings—bespeak how Penang’s multiethnic settlers have lived in harmony and peaceful diversity over the last two centuries.

Beautiful Penang! I am looking forward to revisiting Malaysia, but to focus in Penang in particular. I'll provide the link to this post to a cousin who is now based there. :)

Thank you.

I, too, was astounded by the the beauty of the place's architecture. And they're within walking distance from each other - truly amazing.

Wits, you really should go and visit Penang. They have everything: nice beaches, sumptuous food, culture, a forest reserve, museums... :)
