The Great Wall, Penang Hill


The Great Wall (5 March 2005)



The Great Wall is the name of the hill retreat built by early 20th century Penang tycoon and Municipal Commissioner, Khoo Sian Ewe. It was built in 1933 in the Art Deco style which was in fashion during that time. The home was named after the great retaining wall that skirts the property. At the time of its construction, The Great Wall was one of the highest properties on Penang Hill to be built by a non-European.

What to see and do

The Great Wall is in private hands. One can only watch it from the Penang Hill funicular train as it pulls up into the Viaduct station.
