Macalister Road (or Jalan Macalister) is a rather long road that stretches out from George Town (KOMTAR area) to the outer ring of the city center. The road was found to be named after after Colonel Norman Macalister, who was both the Governor of Penang and a close associate of Captain Francis Light during the 1800s period.
Jalan Masjid (or Jalan Mesjid, Masjid Road) is a small road off Chulia Street which can be found just right beside the Sky Hotel building in George Town. The word ‘masjid’ refers to a mosque, and the road was named after one of the small and old Indian Muslim mosques in the Chulia Street area. There is also a small Indian-Muslim tomb called Makam Maulana Miskin Waliallah located along this road (as pictured below).
