Jubilee Clock Tower
After watching the film "The Rings of Lights" directed by Ang Lee, I will definitely be impressed by the old streets of Wang Lihong and Chen Chong who strolled between Ye Zuyi Building and the Tax Gate Bureau. The bell tower on the background is the famous old Guanzijiao clock tower on the streets of Penang.
The Big Bell Tower, which stands in the old Guanzijiao, has a history of 104 years. This landmark building is a mixture of the English bell tower and the Muslim Moorish dome. It was established by the local Chinese businessman Xie Zengqi of Penang to commemorate the British. The 60th anniversary of Queen Victoria's accession to the throne. Although the clock tower is no longer a bell for the people, its historical value and commemorative significance are rich and far-reaching.
As long as you are close to the Big Bell Tower, it is not difficult to find the English words on the wall of the clock tower that "this clock tower is donated by Xie Zengqi to Penang, and the Queen Victoria is enshrined in the memorial - 1837-1897".
In 2005, the Urban Council allocated funds to beautify the office. In addition to adding neon lights to the big clock tower, the traffic circle in front of the big clock tower erected a giant iron betel nut with a strong local color. Under the latter, the big bell tower was even more Adding modernity, it quickly became another landmark for tourists to enjoy sightseeing.
The old streets of Penang stand with old-fashioned buildings of European, Southern and South Sea flavors. The thick nights of Shanghai are still lingering, and the mottled walls have witnessed the traces of historical change and power.
