Penang: Cheah Kongsi

Thursday Travels is a weekly column featuring sights and sounds from my wanderlust adventures. Come, fly with me, and we’ll explore strange cultures, exotic eats and everything in-between.

Built in 1873, Cheah Kongsi was established to protect the Cheahs’ welfare in Penang. As most of them were migrants from Sek Tong village in South China, the clan house was thus named Cheah Si Sek Tek Tong.

Be careful not to miss the narrow entrance standing discreetly along Armenian Street.
