My World Tuesday - Harmony Street

This street in my hometown Melaka is called Goldsmith Street. However it has the nickname of Harmony Street. Why?

On this street, you will get to see the 3 places of devotion for the 3 major races in Malaysia. They are all located on the left side of the street, close to one another, as seen from the above photo.

The building in orange and green is the Sri Poyyatha Vinayaga Moorthy Temple. A few doors away, where you can see the beige and green building with a minaret, that's the Kampung Kling Mosque. Further down, where you can see 2 red flag poles, that is the Cheng Hoon Teng Temple, the oldest Chinese temple in Malaysia. Isn't it interesting that all these 3 places of devotion are able to co-exist peacefully on the same street?

Please visit That's My World Tuesday portal for more photos.

Our Prime Minister love this - One Malaysia concept.

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
