World's Most Beautiful Clock Towers
Sultan Abdul Samad Building Clock Tower, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Completed in 1897 by the British colonial administration, this building complex and clock tower anchors the city’s Merdeka Square. Its Moorish style can be attributed to the mosques that architect A.C. Norman saw while in India. It was here, on August 31, 1957, that the Union Jack flag was replaced by the Malaysian flag—and many national events have taken place since.
