Indoor Mural Arts At Wisma Chye Hin, Ipoh - Part 1.

After our steamboat lunch which I posted yesterday, my friend and I went to old town to check out the newly opened Wisma Chye Hin Indoor Mural Arts. It was mentioned that this is the first and largest indoor mural arts in Ipoh. Wisma Chye Hin is an old 5 storey building and is located at 19, Jalan Sultan Idris Shah, Ipoh.
3-D art piece on the ground floor at the entrance.

How about a cup of coffee made in the traditional way?
Admission is free. Welcome to view the indoor mural arts!

I can still remember the old Sun Cinema on the left of this painting. I have watched a few movies in this old cinema when I newly shifted to Ipoh.

Here ends part 1 of the mural arts found in Wisma Chye Hin.
Come back tomorrow for part 2.

And now, my little children, stay in happy fellowship with the Lord

so that when he comes you will be sure that all is well and

will not have to be ashamed and shrink back from meeting him.

(1 John 2:28, The Living Bible-TLB)

  3. I love them! The dragons especially. And how wonderful that they are inside! They will not be damaged by the weather. Will it always be free to go in? I can't wait to see the rest!

    1. Thank you, Ginny. I am not sure about the entrance fee. The paintings will last longer since not exposed to sun and rain. Have a wonderful day!
