Reviving Culture, Reliving History...
The Penang Teochew Association in All its Glory
127, Chulia Street, George Town.
Opening hours: 9:00am to 6:00pm daily.
Admission is free.
The Penang Teochew Association’s Han Jiang Ancestral Temple is the embodiment of Teochew architecture, culture, tradition and passion.
Built in 1870, the temple received the Unesco Asia-Pacific Heritage Conservation Award 2006 after undergoing an extensive RM1.5mil restoration.
While master craftsmen from China were brought in to restore the temple to its former glory, it is the association’s steadfast commitment to revitalising the community’s cultural and traditional practices that has truly made it a living heritage worth its weight in gold.
