Photographer's Note

The St George's Church in Penang is the oldest Anglican church in Southeast Asia. It was completed in 1818 on the initiative of the Penang Colonial Chaplain, Rev. Robert Sparke Hutchings and consecrated on 11 May 1819 by the Bishop of Calcutta, Thomas Fanshawe Middleton.

Today, the church is not being used anymore as the members have moved elsewhere.

The Malaysian government declared it as one of the 50 National Treasures of Malaysia in 2007.
