Gelugor is a southern suburb of George Town in PenangMalaysia. Named after a plant species, Gelugor lies along the eastern seaboard of Penang Island, between Jelutong and Sungai Dua, and nearly 5 km (3.1 mi) south of George Town.

Gelugor had been populated as early as the late 18th century by Malay fishermen who arrived here from Sumatra. The area was then cleared for agricultural plantations by David Brown, a partner of Captain Francis Light.
