Street of Harmony

Along a 0.3 mile stretch of Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling in Penang you find four places of worship. These structures represent not only the religious diversity of Penang, but also the artistic, architectural, and cultural diversity of the lovely island. The street is often called the Street of Harmony.
