Once known as Bengali Alley, Argyll Road was an area in George Town predominantly populated by Bengalis, or rather the North Indians immigrants community in the 19th century before the increased population of Chinese immigrants due to mining activities in the country.
Now known as “Segara Ninda“, Ku Din Ku Meh Mansion is an old and historical bungalow located at the junction where Penang Road meets Farquhar Street in George Town. The bungalow is an old heritage house built during the British colonial era in the late 19th century, with traditional Malay design style. It used to belong to Tengku Baharudin bin Tengku Meh, the governor and King of Satun, Thailand in the early 1900, who was also known as Ku Din Ku Meh. The bungalow now belongs to the descendants of Ku Din Ku Meh and the restored building now also provides a lodging service.
