Penang Hill: The Love Locks

Pg Hill Love Locks

During the first World War, there was once a young teacher in the Serbian town of Vrnjacka Banja who fell in love with a soldier, just as he was about to go to war. When Serbia fell as a result of the war, the soldier later married a local woman in Greece, the place where he had been fighting, and never returned. Upon knowing this, the young teacher was so heartbroken that she died. From that day onwards, young girls in her town who wanted to avoid the young teacher’s fate started to place love padlocks on one of the city’s bridges, as a mean to seal their love and the person they loved.

Fashioned after the story above and many similar famous places such as Pont des Arts, Ponte Milvio or Hohenzollern Bridge, Penang Hill‘s Love Locks is the latest attraction on a scenic observation deck seated atop the hill. Those who are interested, can purchase padlocks of various sizes from the counter nearby with pen provided, of course. The observation deck is also at the top of the newly designed food court.
