Travel Photo: Penang Door

The UNESCO world heritage site area of Penang’s Georgetown is a treat to the eyes. It is such a rich visual experience to simply amble through its narrow streets that house a lot of culture in them. Some of them are from the colonial times and some even before it. According to me, this heritage area is one of Malaysia’s cultural highlights from the colonial era.

An Ornate Door in Penang's Georgetown, Malaysia
Like I always do, I had planned on losing myself in one of the many streets and I was without a map and without directions, but I knew I was on Lebuh Mantri as there was a signboard that said that. On this street, there are a lot of traditionally done up buildings, In fact, some of these temples are titled heritage buildings and charge a fee to visit. This photo was taken in front of one of those buildings that didn’t charge a fee and it was closed, but I really liked its intricate door and colour scheme. A really ancient type of wooden door, but with lots of design in it. What do you think?
