Where you'll be

The Harmony Street, is a short street about 300meter, but you can find different religious structures such as Aglican Church, Buddisht Temple, Hindu Temple and Mosque next to each other. I grown up in this wonderful city experience the harmony of different religion and culture come with tolerance and respect. Some of the culture have even blended and create an uniqueness to George Town. Is my passion to bring friends around during my free time.
