It is good for a walk to look at some street art and eat some street food if one is interested. It would be nice to visit if you are in the area.

This is a good place to come to spot some street art. We particularly liked the mural of the cat through the blue window and the one of the kid reaching up the wall.

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.

Filled with shops and food stores in renovated old buildings, alongside places of worship - characteristic of Georgetown; so there is nothing not to like.
