GELUGOR

 

Overview

Gelugor is a suburb located in the southern region of George Town, Penang. It is situated along the coast between Jelutong and Sungai Dua and covers an area of about 185 km2. The Malay settlement of Sungai Gelugor and Bukit Gelugor are part of this suburb. The land was originally cleared David Brown in the 19th century, to establish agricultural coconut groves and for cow herding carried out by Malays and Indians, respectively. He eventually became one of the largest land owners in Penang and his estate, Glugor Estate, covers a large portion of the central east coast of Penang Island. The estate and subsequently this area gets its name from the locally growing tamarind tree, Asam Gelugor. During the 20th century, animal husbandry and agricultural use of land gradually diminished as the land became government land, with government housing being built.
