City Hall, Penang

City Hall, Penang is recognised as national monument in Malaysia. It is a two-storey building situated at the Esplanade in the state of Penang and has a significant historical and architectural value. It is believed that the building was specifically built to house council/municipal offices in the early days. It currently houses the Penang Municipal Council Chambers and two departments – the Licensing and the Urban Services departments. Built in 1903 in the typical British Palladian architectural style, the building has been listed as a national monument since 1982 under the Antiquities Act 1976. 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.
