Whats makes it unique?

Cultural Diversity

Culture reflects our roots. It influences what we do, how we think, our way of living and much more. Penang Hill is lucky to have a myriad of cultural attraction of its own. This brings people from different background together and promotes better understanding of each other.

Penang Hill Mosque (Masjid Bukit Bendera)

Penang Hill Mosque, or Masjid Bukit Bendera, is the only mosque on Penang Hill. Erected for use by Muslims living and working on the Hill, the mosque is located at a short distance from the Hindu Temple. The majority of users of the mosque are those working at the stalls near the Penang Hill Railway Station, government servants working on Penang Hill

The Penang Hill Mosque brings a touch of Islamic architecture to the otherwise colonial-style buildings on the Hill. Its minarets and domes stand in stark contrast to the surroundings, balanced only by the existence of the Hindu temple nearby.

Sri Aruloli Thirumurugan (Penang Hill Hindu Temple)

Sri Aruloli Thirumurugan, or better known as the Penang Hill Hindu Temple, is one of the oldest Hindu temples in Penang. It was set up in the 1800's as a small shrine to the Hindu deity Murugan (the deity associated with Thaipusam) by the Indian sepoys and sedan chair carriers, and is located at a mount within Penang Hill called Gun Hill.

The Dravidian style of constructing Hindu temples calls for four principal parts. The temple proper, or vimana, is the shrine with a tower, a mandapa, or porch, gopurams, or gate towers, and chawadis, or pillar halls. In addition, there would usually be a tank of water for use in sacred rituals or for cleansing.
