Dato Kramat Road (or Jalan Dato Kramat) is a major road in Penang which starts from the area near Komtar all the way to the Ayer Itam district. The road was named after a small Muslim-Tamil settlement near Sungai Pinang in the 18th century before the arrival of Sir Francis Light. The settlement was likely led by a Dato Keramat, a Muslim ascetic of possibly Tamil origin.
