George Town Street View: Church Street

Church Street is one of the many old and historical streets in George Town. It was named after a Catholic missionary church which was later renamed as the first Church of assumption. This church was, however, demolished in 1850s and a new Church of Assumption was built at Farquhar Street.

It was said that back in the old days, a famous and notorious Chinese secret society had made their headquarter at Church Street, the same street that also housed Portuguese churches. There is a street art sculpture which depicts the said history in Church Street.

Church Street runs through several streets as well as connects Kapitan Keling Mosque Street with Beach Street.
