Feel the atmosphere of a time gone by while you admire the quaint buildings at Armenian Street. Stroll along the well-preserved and restored street named after the Armenian people who settled in the area in 1786. Being crafty traders, they introduced aspects of their lifestyle to the local community and made a lasting impression on the city of Penang. Enjoy the old architecture, street murals, and orthodox temples characteristic of the area. You can get a taste of Armenian culture in the many shops and restaurants, which fit in well with the quaint style of the rest of the street.

  • Armenian Street is one of penang heritage street fill with street arts and murals. Best time to visit is during morning and evening time, afternoon would be a bit too to walk around this area. The famous temple also located here.
  • The place has a lot of tourist lining up waiting for their turn to take picture at the street art. Place is accessible on foot. Lots of tourist come by the area with rented bikes as well so if you plan to ride by and check it out, feel free.
