There’s another kind of leaning tower in Malaysia too.

Pisa is as popular if not more than Eiffel, Burj Al-Arab and the likes of tall and commanding towers in the world. 

Pisa is renowned not for its height but for its unique slant position that withstood the test of time. 

In Malaysia, there’s also a leaning tower in Teluk Intan. Built in 1885, it is only 25.5 metres tall and was purposed as a water reservoir in times of drought. But today, it appeals as an 8-storey classic edifice from the exterior but only 3-storeys inside. It has become a tourist attraction. 

Some say there’s a chee cheong fun nearby that promises to add flavour to your visit to this little town in the silver state of Perak, just about two hours north of Malaysia’s capital city Kuala Lumpur. 

Everybody needs somebody to lean on. 

Google: leaning tower teluk intan or clock tower teluk intan.
