Sungai Puyu, Seberang Perai

Start here
Sungai Puyu (GPS: 5.44791, 100.39505) is a locality in Seberang Perai, Penang. It developed out of the village of Kampung Sungai Puyu. The main road, Jalan Sungai Puyu connects Jalan Sungai Dua in the northeast to Jalan Kampung Baru in the southwest. The area that is now Sungai Puyu is contiguous and overlaps with Kampung Benggali and Bagan Lalang. Nowadays the Butterworth Outer Ring Road (BORR) cuts across the Sungai Puyu area, splitting Jalan Sungai Puyu (see map) into two halves.

The pekan or village heart of Sungai Puyu centres around the intersection between Jalan Sungai Puyu and Jalan Kampung Benggali. The area is still lined with semi-wooden village shophouses. The area remains semi rural, not much changed except for the arrival of the BORR a few years back. There isn't any major hotels in the vicinity. Among the sights worthy of note in the area includes its market, the mosque and a Chinese temple. There is a Thai Buddhist temple, called Wat Photichareantham, on the southern part of Sungai Puyu. Near its entrance is the Sungai Puyu Tua Pek Kong temple.
