Home to a stretch of beautiful shophouses, serene temples and quaint little cafes and art galleries, Armenian Street has a distinctively charming personality.
Adorned with meticulously hand painted murals, these paintings on Armenian Street are strongly nostalgic and sentimental, depicting scenes of days gone by. Some well-known murals you can expect to see are “Children on a Bicycle” as well as “I Want Bao”, which is situated right outside Ming Xiang Tai Pastry Shop. Other important landmarks to look out for are the religious temples, such as Cheah Kongsi Clan House Temple, which boasts an ornate, luxurious exterior. With glimmering gold finishings along the edge of the roof and traditional lanterns hanging around the temple, this temple will take your breath away with its extravagant and glorious design. A cultural gem such as this one is hard to come by so those looking for an authentic Penang experience, should definitely visit Armenian Street.
This street is a 2.1km drive from our hotel and will take an estimate of 8 minutes to get there.
