Heritage conservationists will love this and there is a lot of information on how this was conserved. It is not a destination in itself and needs to be combined with at least one more nearby attraction as you will finish seeing this in ten minutes.

I have no idea what this temple looked like prior to restoration but it is fantastic in the intricacy of workmanship. It is not a large temple but it is representative of the Teochew Chinese that lived in the area.

A quiet tuck off the main road for some quiet and peace. It's a simple, beautiful, newly renovated temple.

By preservation wise, this temple is restored to a brand new one. Although lost some of antiquity, it is still a good place to understand the early Chinese immigrants in Penang.

This is an old ancestral temple for the "Teochew Chinese". It is very unique and inside, one can view beautiful ornamental screens and carvings besides the magnificent roof structure.

The temple isn't large - ten or twenty minutes and you'll have explored it. But it's beautifully renovated (details of the renovation are also presented in the temple) and you'll learn a little about local Chinese ancestral tradition.
