Jubilee Clock Tower, George Town, Penang, Malaysia (UNESCO)



The Jubilee Clock Tower in George Town, Penang, Malaysia was built by Cheah Chen Eok in 1897 to commemorate the diamond jubilee of Queen Victoria's reign. It is designed in Moorish style and due to bombings in the Second World War it is slightly tiltet. On the left of the postcard is the stylized, betel nut shaped Penang Fountain. Both sights are  located at the King Edward Palace near the Espanade.
The historical center of George Town was inscribed into the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2008.
Thank you very much for this postcard Minh Way Poh !!!
