Penang - UNESCO World Heritage Sites

Today dropped myself to the celebration of George Town as recognition of UNESCO world heritage site. Malacca is also one of the recognition.

These 2 cities are the places where we studied a lot of history on them....but I guess a lot already given back to cikgu sejarah.

Holy ground - the kapitan keling Mosque.

Khoo Kongsi is a famous tourist spot in Penang, located at Cannon Square. Yet, I never been there so many times i visited Penang. Drum, singing, Hua Yue were performed.

Sri Mariamman Temple is the oldest Hindu temple in Penang since 1883. It located at Jalan Masjib Kapitan Keling and become the important cultural national heritage.

Indians played music in front of the Kereta Kuda Bercahaya before the procession.

Penang Hanjiang Teochew Ancestral Temple located at Chulan Street. It is one of the recognized temple for this heritage conservation awards.
One of the performance - Dragon dance.

They have also teochew drama, group and duet singing throughout the evening.

Hock Teik Cheng Sin Temple, located at Armenian Street. Hokkien glove puppet performance was done.

Hi Malacca, few hundreds metres away there, I presume you are beautiful there also :)
