Photographer's Note

Another angle shot of the ammunition bunker in Fort Cornwallis, a UNESCO World Heritage site. This is a window from a small bunker which was previously been used for gunpowder storage.

Captain Sir Francis Light took possession of the island from the Sultan of Kedah in 1786 and built the original fort. It was a nibong stockade with no permanent structures, covering an area of 417.6 square feet. The fort's purpose was to protect Penang from pirates and Kedah.

Fort Cornwallis is the largest standing fort in Malaysia.
