"World War I Memorial, Esplanade" Top 5 Page for this destination Penang War Museum Tip by SLLiew

Penang War Museum, Penang: 5 reviews and 10 photos


This Cenotaph monument was dedicated to those who perished during World War I.

Unfortunately, the original sword on the Cenotaph was vandalized and only the marking is left.

Apparently there were some submarine and naval confrontations at Penang port during World War and lives were lost. Hope that the sword will be replaced one day.

The location of this memorial is at a strategic location of the Esplanade, next to the sea and the City Hall. There are people fishing there day and night and there is a play ground as well as a Chinese and a Halal Hawker center nearby.

Address: Jalan Padang Kota Lama, near old City Hall
