"Cenotaph" Esplanade Tip by Willettsworld

Esplanade, Penang: 8 reviews and 19 photos


Located near Fort Cornwallis along the Esplanade is this war memorial also known as a cenotaph which commemorates those who dies during World War 1. In reality, Penang saw very little action related to World War I, with the possible exception of the sinking of the Russian ship Zemschug by the German cruise ship Emden. A boay in the sea marks the spot of the attack.
