Fort Cornwallis Penang (Part 1)

A visit to Fort Cornwallis Penang. It was built when Captain Francis Light first landed on Penang. This ancient sentinel of George Town stands guard over the island's cape. The entrance fee is RM 3.00 for adults and RM 2.00 for kids below 12 years old.



























This cannon was presented to the Sultan of Johore by the Dutch. However, it was later given to Acheh, and installed at Kuala Selangor. Finally this cannon was seized by the British and installed here at Kuala Selangor. Finally this cannon was seized by the British and installed here at the north-west bastion of the fort in 1871.
