Background (History)

ON THE EDGE
OF A HIGH CLIFF

Edgecliff Bungalow (originally Braeside) enjoys an astounding view of Penang’s east coast. Although designed by the Scottish architect J.C. Miller as a private bungalow, the Penang Government acquired it only two years later. Overlooking the Penang strait from the port to the north down to the airfield to the south, its strategic importance was too obvious to be ignored. In 2019, Penang Hill Corporation and the Penang State Government initiated the idea of preserving and conserving Edgecliff Bungalow; restoring it into the first information and education centre on Penang Hill for travellers, visitors, world explorers, researchers, scientists, academicians and the intellectually curious.

Today, Penang Hill Gallery@Edgecliff stands majestically watching over the UNESCO World Heritage Site of George Town. Divided into 5 gallery exhibits (Funicular Train, Time Tunnel, Biodiversity, Heritage, Cultural), Penang Hill Gallery@Edgecliff tells meaningful stories of Penang’s highest point from the lenses of those who have lived through its rich history, heritage and time.

LATAR BELAKANG (SEJARAH)

DI PINGGIR TEBING
YANG TINGGI

Banglo Edgecliff (asalnya Braeside) menghamparkan pemandangan pantai timur Pulau Pinang yang menakjubkan. Walaupun ia direka oleh arkitek Scotland JC Miller sebagai banglo persendirian, Kerajaan Pulau Pinang telah memperolehinya dua tahun kemudian. Menghadap selat Pulau Pinang dari pelabuhan di utara hingga ke lapangan terbang di selatan, kepentingan strategiknya terlalu ketara untuk diabaikan. Pada 2019, Perbadanan Bukit Bendera dan Kerajaan Negeri Pulau Pinang telah memulakan idea untuk memelihara dan memulihara Banglo Edgecliff; mengembalikannya sebagai pusat maklumat dan pendidikan pertama di Bukit Bendera untuk pengembara, pelawat, penjelajah dunia, penyelidik, saintis, ahli akademik dan mereka yang ingin tahu secara intelek.

Hari ini, Gallery@Edgecliff di Bukit Bendera berdiri megah menghadap Tapak Warisan Dunia UNESCO George Town. Ia di bahagiakan kepada 5 pameran galeri (Kereta Api Funikular, Terowong Masa, Biodiversiti, Warisan, Budaya), Gallery@Edgecliff Bukit Bendera menceritakan kisah bermakna tentang puncak tertinggi Pulau Pinang dari kaca mata mereka yang telah mengharungi sejarah, warisan dan zamannya yang kaya.
