St. George's Church in Malaysia is the oldest English church in Penang, Malaysia. This beautiful ancient building was built in 1818 to commemorate the first person who established the foundation of Penang. In the center of Penang, this white steeple church is very conspicuous. Although this church is not large, it has a sense of grandeur and solemnity. Rows of neatly shaped columns stand upright. It is one of the most representative buildings in the British style in Penang.
It feels like a British style. I think this place is very sacred and solemn. It looks well maintained from the outside.
St George’s Church in George Town has a beautiful architectural design: a striking white building in neoclassical style, with a spire. It is the oldest Anglican church in South East Asia, and was named one of Malaysia’s 50 national treasures in 2007. It faces towards the sea and has grounds in front with a classical-inspired portico. It’s a great place to visit to get a sense of George Town’s history.
A very beautiful church, built by the British in 1819 and affiliated to the East India Company. It’s really amazing. After reading so many history books, it’s the first time I saw the buildings left by them. This beautiful scenery adds history, and it seems like going back in time. Two hundred years!
