𝐌𝐞𝐞𝐭𝐒𝐧𝐠 𝐏𝐨𝐒𝐧𝐭: World War I Cenotaph, Esplanade 🏦
𝐄𝐧𝐝 𝐏𝐨𝐒𝐧𝐭: Masjid Kapitan Keling Mosque 🏦

Our journey begins at the solemn War Cenotaph in Esplanade, Penang, a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made during World Wars I and II. From here, we embark on a historical exploration, following the "war trail" to revisit the somber period of Penang's wartime occupation.

As we walk, we'll delve into the city's past, uncovering the reasons behind the intriguing tilt of the iconic Penang clock tower (if applicable to your location).

We'll also identify buildings along Beach Street that were repurposed by the Japanese military government during the war. Keep your eyes peeled for the remnants of this turbulent chapter, including the unique opportunity to spot the only surviving Japanese road sign in Penang.

This trail promises to be a mix of somber reflection and historical intrigue, offering a glimpse into a period that shaped Penang's present.Β
