Penang City Hall, Esplanade
Penang City Hall
Built in 1903 in an impressive Neo-classical style, the Old City Hall building portrays a fine example of admirable British colonial architecture still in existence in Georgetown, Penang. The design of the City Hall building bears a resemblance to the nearby Town Hall, which features the balcony as a main element overlooking the Esplanade. The building has been listed as a national monument since 1982 under the Antiquities Act 1976.
The majestic City Hall is the jewel in the Municipal Council’s crown. The Council Chamber, where the 24 Municipal Councillors regularly convene, is located on the ground floor. The small monument you see on the Esplanade is the Cenotaph, a memorial to victims of World War 1.
