A beautiful temple tucked away on the corner of a street, quite small nut beautiful intricate carvings on the pillars and walls. Another sight to behold and to observe the locals using this place to worship.

Armenian Street and Cannon Street is about the center of the Georgetown old town. Nice leisurely walk, wondering the street art and the many restaurants and food vendors along the street.

Cannon St is home not just to awesome temples but also to streetarts. A lot of artworks can be found here as long as boutique stores and cafes.

This is a more interesting street than Armenian Street with fewer tourists and features some interesting old houses and the usual restaurants and cafes. Worth a visit.

Nothing super special but good for walk like the other walking area of George Town. The structure is beautiful and with the touch of heritage. If you are a history lover, you might pay it a visit while walking in the street.
