Bagan Jermal (GPS: 5.43982, 100.3074) is a neighbourhood on the north side of George Town. It is bordered by Gurney Drive to the north, Pulau Tikus to the east, Ayer Rajah to the south and Mount Erskine neighbourhood to the west.
Bagan Jermal got its name from Jalan Bagan Jermal, which in turn got its name from the Bagan Jermal coastal village (known as Kampung Bagan Jermal as well as Kampung Masjid Bagan). The name Bagan Jermal refers to fish traps set on poles along the coast, a contraption used for catching fish in coastal waters. Today Bagan Jermal is a middle to upper class residential neighbourhood.
The Bagan Jermal village still exists today as a cluster of Malay houses hemmed in on three sides by modern development, with the sea forming its fourth side. The atmosphere here is one of quiet serenity, a place where time seems suspended and pace of life slows down.
