Long Description:
This interesting looking fountain stands near the main entrance to the Prangin Mall in Georgetown, on Penang Island. The dominant part of the fountain are two large (they look large to me) swordfish, happily leaping out of the water. Between them is a small, wooden, water wheel, which rotates at intermittent intervals as water is poured into the wheel.

A rather surprising find. It is at a somewhat isolated section of the mall exterior, not overly frequented. Also, no plaque.
