Angsana Trees along Macalister Road
Old and big Angsana trees provide much needed shade to the road users of Macalister Road in Penang. The Angsana trees were said to be planted along this western section of Macalister Road by Charles Curtis, once the curator of the Penang Botanic Gardens in the late 19th century. Macalister Road is also one of the major and longest roads on Penang island.
