Menara Condong or some people call it the “leaning tower” is located in the centre of the town of Teluk Intan, Perak. With the height of 25.5 metres tall, this tower has been claimed as a national heritage in 2015 by then deputy prime minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin. Constructed in 1885 by Mr. Leong Choon Cheong and some Ceylonese contractors, this leaning tower is not as old, tall, nor famous as its Italian counterpart, the Pisa Tower. However, it does have a distinct incline and that makes a curiosity worth visiting. Built mainly to store water for local usage during the dry season and in case of fire, it has been disguised to look like an 8 storey Chinese pagoda from the outside. As the majority of the population of the town at that time was Chinese, the architecture of this tower has been greatly influenced by Chinese architecture especially the pagoda. Each storey has a height of 5 metres and to reach the top of the tower, you will need to go up the 110 steps. Open to be visited from Monday to Friday as early as 8:00am, this tower is also open during weekend and public holidays from 9:00am to 6:00pm.
