Penang Hill Lower Station

Where is it located at?

Penang Hill Lower Station (GPS: 5.40811, 100.27724) is the terminus of the Penang Hill funicular train at the foot of Penang Hill. The older building constructed during the British era is still standing and has been incorporated into the larger station complex, which includes a new ticketing counter, history gallery, and eatery. In between the eatery and the gallery is a courtyard which is today partially sheltered by a canopy, which provides some comfort away from the elements.

The Penang Hill Lower Station is located at the end of Hill Railway Road. It is a short walking distance from the Penang Hill Multi-Storey Car Park. Also within walking distance is the Penang Hill Bus Stop, served by Rapid Penang Bus 204.
