Batu Lanchang Hindu Cemetery is the biggest cemetery for Hindus in Penang. It is located off Batu Lanchang Lane, just behind Island Park. Within the cemetery are Hindu graves which look like small, colourful shrines. As the cemetery is fast getting full, It is managed by the Hindu Endowment Board. The board charges RM550 for gas cremation, RM450 for wood cremation and RM300 for burial at the cemetery. After ten years, there is a renewal fee of RM5000.

Those intending to lease burial plot as well as erect tombstone at the cemetery are to contact the Penang Hindu Endowment Board at Komtar Level 30, phone: 04-650 5215.
