"Lebuh Masjid Kapitan Keling" is a two way street - dominated by the Kapitan Keling Mosque.
This street was cobbled recently and was formerly called "Pitt Street". Used to be beautifullly tree lined but unfortunately the original trees were cut down for road expansion.

There are many money changers and jewelry shops owned by related families of Indian Muslims on this street.

This is also the famous street where there is a Muslim Mosque, Chinese Temple, Hindu Temple and Anglican Church to showcase the diversity and tolerance of religion in Penang since her founding. See the different pictures.
