Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan

The Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan (Malay: Menara Condong Teluk Intan; Chinese: 安顺斜塔) is a leaning clock tower in Teluk Intan, Hilir Perak District, Perak, Malaysia. It is the Malaysian equivalent of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. It is 25 m (82 ft) and, from the outside, looks like an 8 storey building, though inside it is actually divided into 3 storeys.

The tower was built to store water during the dry season, in case of fire as well as to keep time.

It was built under contractor Leong Choon Chong in 1885 but was claimed by a Briton, Neol Danison, and then by the Japanese during their occupation of Malaya in 1941 when they used it as a watch tower.

After the country gained independence in 1957, the tower became an official national monument.[1]
