Georgetown is known for its well-preserved colonial core, where street markets and hawkers continue to be a part of daily life. As in the rest of Malaysia, there is a cosmopolitan mix of Malays, Chinese, Indians, and numerous indigenous people, all with mutual respect for each other’s religious beliefs and ways of life. This diversity is evident, and a wander through its streets may bring you in turn to the extravaganza of a Hindu temple, its sculptured tower covered in brightly painted gods and goddesses; a Buddhist temple to the Goddess of Mercy, Kuan Yin, exuding the sweet scent of sandalwood incense; a mosque with a yellow facade and Moorish dome-shaped minaret; and the white, pillared St. George’s Anglican Church.
