Today Caunter Hall is known as Jalan P. Ramlee. Jalan P. Ramlee was named after Malaysia's most famous entertainer, the late Tan Sri P. Ramlee, whose real name is Teuku Zakaria bin Teuku Nyak Puteh. P. Ramlee was born in his grandmother's house located an on off shoot of the main road. P. Ramlee is of Acehnese descent, which may be incidental considering Jalan P. Ramlee itself borders on Acehnese settlements that follow the meandering Sungai Pinang River nearby. There is also a Jalan P. Ramlee in Kuala Lumpur.
Due to the proximity of Sungai Pinang as well as the low level of the area, Jalan P. Ramlee is prone to flash floods.
