Dr. Sun Yat Sen's Penang Base

The base was a shophouse located at no 120 Lebuh Armenian. First owner was a Straits Chinese named Cheah Joo Seang, a trustee of the Cheah Kongsi. The shophouse has kept its historic interior with carved screens and air wells. From 1909—1911, it was the base of Dr Sun Yat Sen, leader of the historic Chinese Revolution, and the headquarters of the Southeast Asian branch of the Tung Meng Hooi. The local Chinese of that time supported Dr Sun Yat Sen in the great movement against the Manchu government and the foreign imperialists in China. In 1911, China became the first republic in Asia and Dr Sun Yat Sen became its first provisional president.

The temple is flocked by pilgrims and followers all year round especially during the three anniversaries of kuan yin which are on the 19th day of the second, sixth and ninth lunar month.

Kampung Seronok

The name 'Kampung Seronok' originated from a suggestion by an english engineer, d.w. Grehan who had, on a number of occasions, shared in the joy and merrymaking of the kampung folk, in the days shortly after the japanese surrender. What makes it unique is the fact that it is virtually 'open' to visitors who are free to observe and participate in the various cultural activities, traditional games and rural economic pursuits of the people, showcasing the intrinsic values of traditional village life.
