  1. Journey of Harmony (3 hours, morning of 3 August 2016)

This walk leads you to explore and experience five historical religious sites in the heritage enclave of George Town, namely the Goddess of Mercy Temple, Acheen Street Mosque,  Kapitan Keling Mosque,  Church of St George the Martyr, and Sri Maha Mariamman Temple. Within each religious compound, the residents socialized, obtained spiritual education, and practiced acts of welfare and charity, and found solace. The built and living environment within each compound ensures the continuity of each community’s beliefs, rituals, language, philosophy, aesthetics and values.


  1. Little India and the Spice Trail (2 hours, morning of 3 August 2016)

Spices have been widely used in the cooking of the various ethnic groups in Penang and the rest of Malaysia. The spice trail will introduce participants to  the history of spice trade in Penang, an important port of call for ships since the eighteenth century. Participants can also learn about the various spices and their application in health, food and religious practices by visiting a traditional spice grinding shop, Tropical Spice Garden shop in the city and other spice shops and the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple  located at Little India.
