Jalan Pahang is a short road off Dato' Keramat Road within the George Town city centre. It runs from the northwest to the southeast, linking Dato' Keramat Road to the south with Anson Road.
The road was created in the early 20th. century, as George Town was expanding westwards.
Jalan Pahang was named after the Sultanate of Pahang, which is the largest state on the eastern coast of Peninsular Malaysia.
George Town continued expanding westwards out of Penang Road at the turn of the 20th. century. As a result, several new roads off Dato' Keramat Road, including Jalan Pahang, were created and named after the component states of the then British Malaya.
Prior to that, wooden villages had been established around the vicinity of Jalan Pahang. When the area around Jalan Pahang became the outskirts of George Town, the wooden houses were replaced with brick houses built in the Art Deco style.
Today, most of these houses are still in use, although some have been converted into commercial properties.
