You may curious for the stories at the back for this location, but let me tell you I've did a googled about it. Aha! Here comes I would sharing to you some awesome story regards to this beautiful old place ___
The place of historic interest in Penang.
" The Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion was built over a period of seven year between 1897 and 1904. It was one of the many houses belonging to Cheong Fatt Tze (1840-1916), also known locally as Teow Thiaw Siat, a Chinese of Hakka descent.
But of all these properties, this mansion was his favourite residence. All eight of his sons were raised here and received a Western education at the St Xavier's Institution nearby. The house was also the home for his wives No. 3, 6 and 7.
A Chinese Mandarin of the highest order, a Consul General of the Qing Government, Special Trade Commissioner for South East Asia and a director of China's first modern bank and first railway, Cheong's death was acknowledged with flags flown at half-mast by Dutch and British Colonial Governments of the region.
The mansion complex consists of 38 rooms, 5 courtyards, 7 staircases and 220 windows which contained stained glass imported from Staffordshire, England, Venetian shutters, Gothic timberworks and Victorian cast ironworks together with gold-leafed timber lattice work and Chinese ceramic decorations on roofs, gables and verandahs.
