Armenian Street is regarded as Heritage Enclave by the Penang Government and it certainly lived up to its reputation.
The Islamic Museum is the former home of Syed Mohamad Alatas, an Arab pepper trader from Acheh, and leader of the Red Flag secret society based in Lebuh Acheh until the 1890s. Since the 1930s, the mansion had been used as a scrap yard. Fortunately, in 1993, it became the subject of a pilot municipal government, and headed by the world famous conservation architect Didier Repellin. Today, the property is owned by the Municipal Council and is now Islamic Museum. Admission fee is RM3 for adult and RM1 for children
Hock Teik Cheng Sin Temple is devoted to worship Tua Pek Kong (God of prosperity and morality)
Khoo Kongsi is a must see temple (Winner of the UNESCO Asia Pacific Heritage Conservation Award) Also known as the "Leong San Tong", the history of the Khoo Kongsi spans for more than 70 years. Considered the most beautiful temple in Penang, its carved beams made of the finest wood and architectural design never fail to awe its visitors
Khoo Kongsi is located in a rather secluded area and this arch is the entrance to the temple. Turn right after entering. Too bad I did not have enough time to visit and appreciate the temple. Admission fee applies
After 5pm, Armenian Street pretty much transformed into a street/flea market. Almost everything from toys, antique, clothes, electronic product, bags and etc can be found at this hour. One can even bargain before buying.
