Note: Mural 3 is expunged (no longer there), so you might want to go straight to Mural 4. Nevertheless I show its location as you will be passing through the site.

The map below shows the trail covered. Each mural site is numbered in sequence, with the route from one to the other plotted out. This helps you cover all the murals at the shortest time with as little turning back as possible.

Updates on the Zacharevic Murals

February 2016 Due to weathering of the elements some of the murals have deteriorated. At time of writing, Zacharevic has touched up four of the murals (Little Children on a Bicycle, Reaching Up, Little Boy with Pet Dinosaur, and Boy on a Bike). I will update here if he should touch up the rest of the murals.

The Route

Jalan Penang - Lebuh Muntri - Lorong Love - Lebuh Chulia - Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling - Lebuh Cannon - Lebuh Armenian - Lorong Soo Hong - Lebuh Ah Quee - Gat Lebuh Armenian - Chew Jetty.

Start of Walking Trail

The walking trail of Ernest Zacharevic murals starts with The Awaiting Trishaw Paddler . You can reach this spot by various means, including by taking the Free Rapid Penang CAT Shuttle Bus to Bus Stop No 7 on the route. From there, the mural is just in front of you. If you go in the morning part of the day, you will have the sun illuminating the mural (in the late afternoon it will be under shadow).
