The clock tower also known as Tan Beng Swee Clock Tower stands in Red Square and is the same distinct red shade as the buildings here. It was built in 1886 and though not as historical as everything here, blends in with its surroundings.

You will automatically see the clock tower when you visit Dutch Square, as it is located in the centre. It is nothing spectacular, but Dutch Square is a 'must see' on your visit to Malacca.

A simple tower, but nice, and it is in the middle of Dutch square, so you will see it anyway if you go there. Alos the windmill, another small but lovely landmark there.
