Penang Masonic Temple
Jalan Utama (Western Road)

From Bro Alistair Glenny PM 

Once more I am pleased to be able to report on my recent visit to Penang, and to highlight the continuing work on the Masonic Hall (Dewan Freemason) where all Masonic business in Penang takes place.

As you will see from the photograph, the Temple illustrates the efforts at the hands of many craftsmen in creating such a superb environment for local & visiting Brethren of all branches of Freemasonry. Well done to all.


The curtains adorn the Main Temple alongside the wall lights and chandeliers, highlighting the arched ceiling revealed during renovations. In the adjacent there is a smaller Temple equally refurbished, an ideal location to facilitate meetings of smaller numbers. The downstairs Hall, again refurbished, whilst not in use for Masonic duties such as Festive Boards etc., is used by the community at large.

To enable easy access from Ground level to the Temple on the Floor above a Lift has been installed. As can been seen guidance can be obtained as in Freemasonry in general by the observing of the “G”


I was able whilst there in Penang to present a token of our Best Wishes with an apt glass trophy showing a handshake. Many hands were used in the building renovation and this gift was well received by the Brethren of Lodge Scotia 1003 by PM Albert Lai from the brethren in Number XII.


The Royal Prince of Wales Lodge No 1555 EC. Is within The District Grand Lodge of The Eastern Archipelago, and in accordance with the Summons I attended on Wednesday 4th January 2017.  English Constitution, practised by a Lodge in Malaysia under the leadership of a Swiss R W M.

The Lodge performed a Third Degree on candidate Brother Sivabalan Munusamy who was initiated on April 1st 2015, passed on 4th November 2015. The degree work was of an exceptional standard and the format was very similar to a Raising carried out in Lodge Greenock Kilwinning No x11.

Fraternal greetings were exchanged, and once more it was a pleasure to renew my friendships.


Whilst Lodge Shamrock in Penang No 938 I.C. had no meeting in January, an invitation was extended to attend a committee meeting chaired by the RWM W.Bro Parameshwaran Kassipillai, and how interesting it was to be reminded that Freemasonry is universal as are its issues and challenges
