Bevor we left busy George Town, we stopped off at Fort Cornwallis. Fort Cornwallis is a bastion fort built by the East India Company in the late 18th century and named after the then Governor-General of Bengal, Charles Cornwallis.
It is one of George Towns most interesting and historical landmarks and part of George Town’s UNESCO World Heritage Site.
One of the displayed cannons is a so called Seri Rambai, a dutch cannon from 1603. As the largest bronze cannon in Malaysia, it is subject of legends and prophecy and seen as a fertility symbol by the locals.
Afterwards we enjoyed some delicious malaysian food at the Kota Dine & Coffee. #fortcornwallis#penang#unescoworldheritage#history#cannon#malaysia#moredeliciousfood#yummy#kotadineandcoffee@swabian_in_schwabing
