The tour will takes you to Muntri Street where the Hainan Temple (or Temple of Heavenly Queen), dates back to 1895. The present building was rebuilt in the 1990’s. The road leading to our next stop will be narrow and along the way the old pre-war houses used to be homes for the local Chinese have now become budget hotels and restaurants. This is because of the Rent Control Acts in the 1980’s where rentals increased by more than a 100%. The walk will take you to the Carpenter Guilds – Centre for the Cantonese carpenters who contribute their skills to the present Heritage building. Kapital Kling Mosque was built at the start of the 19th century by the Indian Muslim traders. You walk towards Armenian Street where Dr. Sun Yat Sen used to stay for a while when he was in Penang trying to get the support from the Chinese here to help him to take down the Manchu. Cannon Square is where the Khoo Kongsi is located. Khoo Kongsi represents the opulence and prosperity of the “Khoo Clan”. Teochew Temple is the Ancestral Temple for the early Teochew migrants built in 1870. Next, you will walk along Little India with a stop at the oldest Indian temple, Sri Maha Mariamman Temple built in 1833, dedicated to the Hindu deity Sri Muthu Mariamman. The walk along the Grid of Francis Light will bring you to roads like King Street, Queen Street, Market Street and end up at Church Street where Peranakan Mansion was built in the late 19th century for the Kapitan Chung Keng Kwee who was in charge of tin mining in Taiping. The present building is now a meseum housing a lot of the Peranakan history and art effect.
