In the neck of my woods, Penang is known for a few things  – great street art, great street food and a UNESCO World Heritage city.  All of that were exciting, enticing and engaging a first time visitor like myself.  As I was exploring the island-city I became  enchanted with front doors of some of the heritage houses.

Sala Chaloem Thani or the Nang Loeng Cinema, is the original wooden cinema in Thailand.  Built in 1918, the cinema showed films for over 75 years until it’s closing in 1993.  It’s a landmark in the city’s cultural tour due to it’s proximity to Nang Loeng Market.

These Buddha images can be found in Wat Saket or the Temple of Golden Mount.  But you will not find them in the temple on top of the man-made mount but in one of the side building of the temple compound.
