  • With a "good-sized" main building consisting of more than just mainly the shrine room (as is the case at the main building of the "more publicized" Khoo Kongsi which despite its impressively glitterin...  more »
  • The attraction is very unpopular because they do not give any facility to access, I think that they spend more on organized tours. The office is outside the enclosure and people prefer to spend, it is of the few places where they pay in Malaysia. The gardens and the interior of the House are very well preserved, it is worth entering.

  • 槟城是马来西亚华人最多的城市之一,有较多的华人宗祠,其中较有名的有邱、林、陈、杨、谢五大姓的宗祠(龙山堂邱公司、九龙堂林公司、颖川堂陈公司、植德堂杨公司、世德堂谢公司)。世德堂谢公司就坐落在以其先祖命名的谢德顺路(Teik Soon Street)上,规模较大,但是我们去的时候,对面并不开放,所以只能在前后门拍了几张照片  more »

  • One of the most beautiful and breathtaking Chinese architecture in Penang, the temple is just spectacular and well crafted. Another prime example illustrating the legacy of those successful overseas Chinese. The clan temple belongs to the Cheah family (谢, Xie) which were one of the most prominent Chinese clans in North Malaysia, well representing in political and business sectors. Other important clans were the Khoos (邱), Lims (林) and Yeohs (杨) Famous Cheah people from Penang include Cheah Tek Soon (谢德顺), Cheah Hun Yam (谢寒掩), Cheah Seng Kim (谢成金) and Cheah Choo Yew (谢自友). All were prominent and successful merchants, political figures and community leaders
  • Beautiful gem in the heart of georgetown. The history of the chinese arriving to penang mixed with the beautiful chinese architecture makes it well worth the 10 rm ! Dont let people tell you different
  • Very nice and well maintained place. Covered any essential pieces of life in a chinese malaysian.
  • If you are architect guru, you MUST visit this place. Knowing the history and design of this family will provide you much passionate on the flow of history
  • You have to pay with no tour guide or anything. Not worth it
