Unfortunately it is a mini roundabout with narrow pathway. Cars are parked around the roundabout with only space for a car to drive around the roundabout. Caution walking around that area.

It's just a place you stand to take a photo to say you've been there in Penang. Nothing special. Do be careful of cars while posing.
