Nagore Road After the Rain

Nagore Road

Nagore Road is a small old road with rows of straits-style terrace houses located along it. Used to be residential houses back in the old days, most of these houses are now currently used as commercial shops, cafes and restaurants. This road is accessible via a right turning from Burmah Road. The area is also now known as Nagore Square and one may find many art murals scattered around this area.

Muntri Street: Penang Goldsmith Association

graffiti05
Penang Ta Kam Hong (or translated as Penang Goldsmith Association) is the oldest Chinese goldsmith association in Malaysia which was founded in the 1800s at Muntri Street, George Town. Most of its goldsmith members are of Cantonese descent and they generally worship Wu Ching, the patron deity of goldsmiths within the association’s guild temple.

The large art mural of the ‘Girl in Blue’ drawn by Ernest Zacharevic can be found on the side wall of a neighboring house of the association.
