In 1791, Sultan Abdullah (with the help of Riau, Siak, and Selangor) prepared a navy to attack and retake Penang after Francis Light failed to keep to the end of his agreement.


Francis Light had learned of the Sultan's plan to attack the EIC. Francis Light asked assistance from the British Military to launch a surprise attack on Kedah at Seberang Perai.

During the British attack, a cannon owned by Sultan Abdullah was tossed onto the beach. The cannon was discovered sometime later. Hence the name "meriam timbul".


The cannon is now a shrine (Keramat Meriam Timbul), tucked in the quiet fishing village facing Tanjung Penaga (Penang), the place it was meant to maim.


The shrine located near Penang Sentral and Pangkalan Sultan Abdul Halim is open to public.

PHG do not know whether the cannon was discovered before or after the peace treaty was signed. If you have insights, drop us a comment!
