Located at Jalan Tun Syed Sheh Barakbah, Fort Cornwallis (Kota Cornwallis in Malay) is one of the most important structures in George Town, Penang. It is the largest intact standing fort in Malaysia which was built for defending Penang from pirate attacks.
Named after Charles Marquis Cornwallis, the Governor General of Bengal, the design of Fort Cornwallis is very much like that of other British forts in India. The fort played a major role in stabilizing George Town as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the interior of Fort Cornwallis, there stands a bronze statue of Captain Francis Light along with barracks, munitions storage areas and prison cells.
