Stewart Lane, George Town, Penang (7 July, 2008)

Stewart Lane is a small lane in the core zone of the George Town UNESCO World Heritage Site. It starts at Chulia Street and ends at the intersection with Love Lane, where it is continues as Muntri Street. Stewart Lane is perhaps best known as the lane beside the Goddess of Mercy Temple. It is said to have been named after a Eurasian who had his home along the lane.

Crammed within one corner of Stewart Lane is Boatmen Alley, the narrowest residential alley in George Town. This alley, with addresses numbered to Stewart Lane, used to house boatmen of the Lee Clan Jetty.
