PhotoHunt - Cityhall, Magical
The City Hall is one of the most photographed buildings located at the Esplanade in Penang. I've walked passed this historic structure countless times but funny that I have never been inside there.
Built in 1903, it is a magical colonial building from the heyday of the British Empire. It was originally called the Municipal Office, Penang but later it was renamed City Hall when George Town was granted city status in 1957. Currently it houses the licensing and urban service department of the Penang Municipal Council.
