As a world heritage site, George Town is a city full of vitality with a unique blend between the ancient and the modern. This tour will introduce travellers to the stories behind the origin of the Indian community, and how they have stamped their footprints and lives in this city.

On this tour, I will lead you through the centre of Georgetown, letting you experience the cultural journey of Penang as we tour around busy streets lined with street stalls, traditional craftsmen, and historical temples

In addition, we will experience the traditional craftsmanship of the community as you try your hand at traditional Indian craft-making.

Start of our tour!

1. We will gather outside the gate of the Penang Chinese Town Hall (the building next to the Goddess of Mercy Temple)

2. Walk into Little India and learn from the street stalls and shops how the ancestors travelled across the ocean, the footprint and stories they left in the city, and the culture of the ethnic groups.

3. Visit the traditional trades, shops, and ancient craftsmanship that have been handed down in Little India.

4. Visit the oldest Hindu temple in Penang - the Sri Mahamariamman Temple, and learn about the beliefs and myths of Hinduism.

5. In addition, we will learn to make traditional Indian crafts on the street. The types of crafts are sometimes random because it needs to be based on materials that can be found in the month, such as flower garland, hand-painted Henna or Thoranam.

6. A light refreshment break will be provided during the tour. At the end of the tour, a special Indian banana leaf rice will be served.
