Penang Road Photos
Penang Road photos have a lot
of variety in terms of buildings and human activities as the place is one of
the longest and busiest place in Penang. Here are some of the photos of
Penang Road. One day you must come and walk the street yourself. Meanwhile,
take the virtual tour of my pictorial essay below.
Segara Ninda, a charming heritage hotel in
The trishaw men waiting for their passengers at
Upper Penang Road.
The meeting point of Chulia Street, Penang Road
and Leith Street. It is a triangular yard with
memorial plagues and flag poles to mark the place of the first Police Station
(Balai Polis). You can
still see the foundation stone of undressed granite buried here. The tram also
used to pass here.
Peking Hotel was built a few decades earlier
than Hotel Malaysia but both
are still thriving amidst newer hotels being built in Penang Road.
A vegetables seller and a horse chestnut vendor
at Chow Rasta Street. As this place
is the center for fresh produce, businesses overspill to neighboring streets
during peak shopping hours in early morning.
These are examples of nicely maintained Strait
Chinese shophouses that you can see in these Penang Road photos. Bright colors
and elaborate stucco are part of the characteristics of Eclectic Style.
The left photo is the minaret of Benggali
Mosque at Leith Street. The other is a Sikh temple right in the middle of busy
Majestic tower of Cititel
Hotel. This is one of the newer high-rise buildings in the city.
The beginning of Penang Road if you come from
Chulia Street. Line Clear Nasi Kandar is just a few steps from this place, an
alley on the left side.
