Ferry depot at Bagan Dalam, Butterworth (15 august, 2015)
Bagan Dalam (GPS: 5.39264, 100.36991) is a place within the town of Butterworth south of New Ferry Road and Chain Ferry Road, next to the Butterworth Deepwater Wharf. It takes its name after Kampung Bagan Dalam located in that area. The main road in that area is also called Jalan Bagan Dalam. Bagan Dalam probably got its name from piers along the Prai River. These are "inland piers" compared to those jutting out into the open sea at Bagan Luar.
Bagan Dalam is bordered by Jalan Chain Ferry to the north, the Prai River to the south and the sea to the west. It is the area north of the Prai River from the town of Prai.
Among the prominent buildings in Bagan Dalam include the Butterworth Convent School, a Sikh Temple, Church of the Navitity of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Masjid Jamek Bagan Dalam. The Sri Bagan flats is the only notable high-rise in the area. The Butterworth Outer Ring Road cuts through Bagan Dalam, to connect with Prai in the south and Bagan Luar in the north.
