Mount Erskine, Tanjung Tokong
Mount Erskine is a freehold town that is located in Tanjung Tokong, Penang Island.

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.

Nevertheless, this area remains a significant and unique aspect of Penang's cultural history and identity.
