Dato Koyah Shrine

Dato Koyah Shrine, or Keramat Dato Koyah, is a shrine to a Muslim saint along Transfer Road in George Town. He arrived in Penang from the Malabar coast in southern India (in present-day Karnataka and Kerala), where he was a mendicant, wandering from place to place, teaching, healing the sick, until one day, an incident happened that forced him to flee. Dato Koyah arrived in Penang some time in the early 19th century.
