The Khoo Kongsi in Penang is a large Chinese clanhouse famous for its unique and highly intricate ancient Chinese architecture. The clan temple is the grandest and one of the oldest in the country, making it a popular historic tourist attraction. As one of the wealthy Chinese traders of the 17th century at the Straits, the Khoo clan has a large presence in the island back then. The clanhouse complex is located in Cannon Square at the heart of the heritage zone in George Town.
