Teluk Intan Leaning Tower

This leaning tower is situated in Teluk Intan, which is a transit town for those who travel from Kuala Lumpur to Pangkor Island using the coastal route.

The leaning tower was constructed in 1885 and stands at 25.2 metres high. It started to tilt four years after its completion due to an underground stream. On top of this tower is a clock, which, up till today still rings every 15 minutes.

This pagoda like 8-storey building was originally used as a water storage tower to supply water to the town area.

Today, the leaning tower no longer stores water and has become a prominent landmark and a major tourist attraction in Teluk Intan.
