Penang City Hall

pch1The Penang City Hall is a British-built, Edwardian-style building in George Town, Penang. Formerly the seat of the City Council of George Town, this building is currently the seat of the Penang Island City Council.

Originally built in 1903 as the Municipal Office, the building was erected at a cost of $100,000 to relieve the demand for office space at the adjacent Penang Town Hall. The name "City Hall" dates from the grant of city status to George Town in 1957.

Both buildings overlook the historic parade ground (the Padang) along Esplanade Road, and affords a panoramic view of the Esplanade. Across the street, a Cenotaph, built to commemorate the First World War dead, stands at the Esplanade facing the sea.

Built in 1903, this is the headquarters of the Penang Islan Municipal Council. A World War 1 monument for fallen soldier is also located here.
