TWENTY people, mostly tourists, got a feel of Malaysias
multi-religious community during a recent walkabout in George
They were taken to places of worship of four different faiths
during the World Religions Walkabout held in conjunction with
the Penang Global Ethic project, sponsored by the Malaysian Interfaith
Network and Konrad Adenauer Foundation.
Led by a heritage guide, the participants visited a mosque, a
Catholic church, an Anglican church, a Buddhist temple and a Hindu
temple along Farquhar Street and Jalan Mesjid Kapitan Keling.
Jalan Mesjid Kapitan Keling is sometimes called the street
of harmony since the places of worships of four major religions
are along the road.
The free tour started from the Penang Town Hall at the Esplanade
and lasted two-and-a-half hours.
Penang Heritage Trust (PHT) office manager Magdeline Ng-Leong
said the walkabout focused on the sharing of knowledge about the
history and values represented by landmarks and places of worships.
There will be other walkabouts today at 9am and on Wednesday.
