Formerly a Chinese village, Sungai Keluang has over the decades been developed, with the village houses having been cleared. Nonetheless the one remaining landmark at Sungai Keluang is still a major attraction in Penang. And that's the famous Snake Temple.

The name Sungai Keluang has appeared (as "Soongy Cluan") as early as 1796, in the diary of William Scott, describing the expedition to survey the area for the possible establishment of James Town.

The Snake Temple sits on a knoll some two hundred meters from the river. It commanded a view of coconut plantations which have since been replaced by Phase I of the Bayan Lepas Free Industrial Zone.

Also located within Sungai Keluang are more recent religious buildings, built since the 1990's. They include the Than Hsiang Temple, the Charismatic Church of Penang and the Bayan Baru Sivan Temple.
