Malaysia boasts its own equivalent to the world-famous Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy, right here at the heart of the Teluk Intan town centre.  Like its Italian counterpart, the Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan has a leftward slant, and all the ingredients to make it an architectural sight to behold.

Standing at 25.5 metres tall, its construction detail gives it an appearance which comprises of 8 different levels.

Once inside, however, one will be surprised to discover that the building is actually divided into only 3 storeys.

This pagoda-style structure was built in 1885 by a Chinese contractor namely Leong Choon Chong, and was originally used as a covered water tank to store potable water for the immediate vicinity.  Today, it stands as an architectural oddity that continues to attract visitors to Teluk Intan.
