No. 7. Places of Worship
The most unique would be Jalan Tokong, (the locals call it Harmony Street), where within a stone’s throw from each other are the most popular Cheng Hoon Teng Temple, the oldest Chinese temple in Malaysia built in 1645; Kampung Keling Mosque which was completed in 1868, and Sri Payyatha Vinayagar Moorthi Temple, built in the late 18th Century and recognised as the oldest Hindu temple in Malaysia.
One is hard pressed to find a similar street anywhere in Malaysia where the places of worship of three major religions in Malaysia co-exist along the same narrow street.
