Penang Isle: The Supreme Court Complex

The Penang Supreme Court complex at Farquhar Street, Georgetown was built in 1903 during the British colonial years and has been hearing cases ever since. The court complex incorporated neo-Palladin style architecture and is currently houses the Penang High Court. The design of the complex was done by the Public Works Department, which was headed by John Henry McCallum, the Surveyor-General of the Straits Settlements at that time. The Penang Supreme complex was also expanded with a 3-storey wing. The Logan Memorial is located right in front of the court’s main entrance.
