  • This Clock Tower isn't very big, stands alone on a large square and is well maintained. The tower brings us back in the colonial periods such as also other buildings that surrounds the square.  more »
  • It's just a clock tower. I don't think you can exactly park besides it. Just take a picture for remembrance and go.  more »
  • A historical bell tower that keeps time, the Big Clock Tower is associated with several other buildings in the area. Built in 1912, this building had an important function - to announce the Muslim prayer time. In the past, the clock would ring at prayer time, prompting the beating of the gongs at the nearby Balai Nobat. Then, the muezzin at Masjid Zahir would begin the azan, or the Muslim call to prayer.
  • It’s a very good landmark of Alor Setar City.
