Conserve Malaysia's built heritage (7)


Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion, Penang
Winner of the UNESCO Conservation Award 2000 and the National Architecture Award for conservation 1995, this once extremely dilapidated mansion was restored in the mid-1990s to the highest standards. It now dazzles visitors with indigo-blue walls, and incorporates 38 rooms, 5 courtyards, 7 staircases and 220 windows.
