THE Habib Heritage Gallery in Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling, George Town, is one of the very few remaining Jawi Peranakan shophouses in Penang. This is where Habib features an exquisite display of beautiful jewellery, making the gallery a must-visit section of the double-storey outlet.
Some of the original Habib collection with over 1,000 pieces of Jawi Peranakan jewellery, dating back to as far as 100 years are displayed at the gallery.
It was the original Habib showroom established in 1958 by founder Datuk Habib Mohamed Abdul Latif. It was open to the public in 2012, and the gallery sits on the top floor while the Habib jewellery showroom is located on the ground floor.
