This is a small Chinese temple at the junction of Canon Street and Armenian Street. It has a lot of intrinsic carvings on the roof, which is typical of temples built by the Straits Chinese.

If you are on walking tour from Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling to Armenian Street or from Cannon Street to Armenian Street, you won't miss this decorative small temple. It is also known as Yap Kongsi. The dragon pillars at the front porch of the temple are especially stunning for their craftsmanship. Our short stop allowed us to appreciate the temple's architectural design, typical Chinese temple layout and furnishing. You will feel awesome in an extensively decorated hall.

This temple does not have any particular wow factor but is worth a look if you are walking via Armenian Street into China Town. The carvings around the main entrance door are intricate and beautifully designed no doubt to tell many a story

This temple, right in the centre of the town, where the riskja owners offer their services to the tourists and locals, stand the chinese part of the little complex and the colonial style of the temple building. During early morning there are lots of tourists in the area enjoying the relative cool part of the day. The temple is worthwhile to visit when in the area. The temple and anex building are dedicated for the Chinese Yap clan. The temple was completed in 1924.

This was quite an intricate temple sitting on the corner of Armenian Street and Cannon Street. It is Chinese and built by the Yap Clan in 1929. Way back the street was called Malay Lane but by 1808 because of the influx of Armenian Traders it was renamed Armenian Street.

Nice architecture from the outside. At the end of Armenian street so you cant miss it! You will probably pass by as you walk around town. Nice to walk on Harmony street and see the four different types of religious temples. Free entrance. Not necessarily worth a detour but great to look at.

Great spot for some photography opportunities. The Chinese architecture of the temple is beautiful, as are the surrounding colonial buildings.

You will definitely look at this if you are in the Armenian Street area. But compared to other Penang temples, at most you will just glance around for two minutes. It's not a destination on its own.
