Penang people, whether staying around the urban city centre or in the rural island regions, live in harmony and each ethnic race has the freedom to believe in their own religion.

 

Places for worship and prayers are scattered around the major residential housing estates.  But those buildings which were built by the early immigrants would be located in the surroundings of Georgetown heritage city.  The architectural design of each building is unique.
