Chung Ling High School in Ayer Itam is a Chinese boys’ school and also one of the oldest and most well known Chinese schools in Penang. Founded by the local supporters of Dr Sun Yat Sen in the early 1900s, the school was originally established in George Town, before moving to several locations until it was finally relocated to its current location in 1923.
What used to be a magnificent five-storey mansion and later converted into a school is now an abandoned ruined structure in George Town.
