Goddess of Mercy Temple 观音亭 (Penang)

The oldest Chinese temple in Penang that is located at the intersection of Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling and Lorong Stewart. From the locals, I got to know that the temple is quite popular and will be crowded during the birthday of Guan Yin (Goddess of Mercy) and Chinese New Year period. As the temple is located very near to Red Inn Court where I was staying, walking to the temple took me less than 5 minutes.
How to get there?
