Jubilee Clock Tower, George Town

2.1
For a reminder of Malaysian colonial heritage, check out Jubilee Clock Tower, built in 1897 to commemorate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. It is crafted in an ornate Moorish style and is 18 m (60 ft) tall--one imperial foot for each year of Victoria's reign. The tower leans slightly to one side as a result of Japanese bombing during World War II. Standing tall in the middle of a busy city intersection, the structure remains  an authentic reminder of bygone times.
