Ancient tomb

Christian Cemetery - Penang Heritage Trial

For some strange reasons, I found this photo very soothing and cheerful. I was indexing my photos and stumbled upon it. I just love the frangipani in the foreground of the tombs.

If you are in Penang, remember to make a trip to this graveyard which is along the heritage trail. The grave of our Penang founder, Sir Francis Light is also here. He was laid to rest along with all the English men who perished here due to malaria, mostly. It is kind of sad to see little babies and small children graves too.

    I also love this cemetary, I used to do voluntary work at ‘St Josephs Home’ which backs onto the cemetary. I would often take a walk through this place, it was like a history lesson on Penang.
