Fodor's Expert Review Harmony Street (Jalan Tokong Besi)

Malacca Religious Building/Site/Shrine

So-called Harmony Street in Malacca's Chinatown neighborhood (its official name is Jalan Tokong Besi) takes its nickname from the trio of interesting religious attractions found here. The intricately carved Cheng Hoon Teng Temple is Malaysia's oldest Chinese temple, dating from 1646 and still in use as a Buddhist temple while the 18th-century Sri Poyyatha Vinayagar Moorthi Temple is Malaysia's oldest Hindu temple. The third house of worship is Kampung Kling Mosque, which is not the oldest mosque in Malaysia (that honor belongs to Masjid Kampung Hulu, also in Malacca and built by the Dutch in 1728), but it was finished back in 1868 and is notable for its pagoda-like architecture.
