{penang} gereja st george

July 23, 2016

After leaving the history museum, one of the first things I came across was a fancy church. It turns out that I had come across St. George’s Church, a 19th-century Anglican church, which happens to be the oldest purpose-built Anglican church in Southeast Asia. While it didn’t look that big from the outside, this active Anglican church had beautiful Doric columns that I always feel make a place look extra grand. It also happens that the Malaysian government declared St. George’s to be one of 50 National Treasures of Malaysia. Who knew this rather unassuming place was so important!
