Established in 1976, the Municipal Council of Penang Island is responsible for administering the Georgetown and Penang Island. The city hall that houses the Council is an elegantly-fashioned colonial building from the period of the British Empire in the late 19th century. The majestic white-washed building is a famous landmark in Georgetown and is located in front of The Esplanade. Also in the vicinity of the Council is the Cenotaph - a memorial for World War I - as well as the Padang Kota Lama.
There are no specific opening and closing times for sightseeing visitors. Only a very short visit is recommended.
