#1 of 6 in Neighborhoods in Penang
Neighborhood Historic Walking Area
Feel the atmosphere of a time gone by while you admire the quaint buildings at Armenian Street. Stroll along the well-preserved and restored street named after the Armenian people who settled in the area in 1786. Being crafty traders, they introduced aspects of their lifestyle to the local community and made a lasting impression on the city of Penang. Enjoy the old architecture, street murals, and orthodox temples characteristic of the area. You can get a taste of Armenian culture in the many shops and restaurants, which fit in well with the quaint style of the rest of the street.
