Mount Erskine, Tanjung Tokong

Mount Erskine is a freehold town that is located in Tanjung Tokong, Penang Island. It is known for its large Chinese cemeteries which were established by the Cantonese, Teochew and Hokkien communities. These cemeteries are an important cultural and historical landmark that attract many visitors every year, particularly during the Qingming Festival when the Chinese come to pay their respects to their ancestors. Despite the importance of this area, over the years the urbanisation of the neighbourhood has crept in, leading to increased development and construction activities. This has raised concerns among many who fear that the area's cultural heritage may be compromised by these ongoing developments. Nevertheless, this area remains a significant and unique aspect of Penang's cultural history and identity.
