This old Chinese Temple is in the Little India area. Built in 1870 it has been restored. This old temple is the only example in Georgetown of Teochew architecture.

We came across this restored temple unplanned during our walk around Penang. What a gem. We also visited many other of the TA-rated go-to sites and temples in Penang but this one was more memorable because of the "cozier" smaller plot area, wonderful design and...More

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.
