oic…so these why call teluk intan…
----history of Teluk Intan 安顺----
In the early 1980s the town was the third largest town in Perak. Teluk Intan is the major town for smaller neighbouring towns such as Tapah, Bidor, Bagan Datoh and Hutan Melintang. Until mid 1990’s a neighbouring Selangor-state town, Sabak also depends on Teluk Intan for its survival. Even their calling code was registered using Perak calling code which is 605 instead of 603. Acute medical cases would be transferred to Teluk Intan Hospital as their hospital did not have the expertise.
As the Perak River becomes shallower each year due to upstream erosion and silt deposition near Teluk Intan, the town loses its two most important roles in Perak’s economy which is tin and rubber exporting harbour and petroleum distribution centre. This is because big oil tankers and cargo ships can no longer sail into the town’s port. At the end of 1980’s, a Dutch petroleum company transferred their petroleum storing facilities to the coastal town of Lumut in Manjung, located 60km from Teluk Intan. As the economic activity declined, it also lost its railway facilities which connected the town with Tapah and national railway network.
During 1990s, economic activities in Teluk Intan kept declining. This situation forced the younger generation to migrate to bigger cities such as Kuala Lumpur and Shah Alam in search of better jobs. It looked like that this town was forgotten by the national economic boom during early and mid 1990s. The town suffered a shortage in labour supply especially in the agriculture sector. Indonesian and Bangladeshi immigrants started to inhibit Teluk Intan until today.
With a new town centre along with the completion of new coastal highway from Klang to Sabak Bernam, Teluk Intan today enjoys a steady growth. In April 2005, the town was announced as the fourth major town in Perak after Ipoh, Taiping and Manjung.
One of the town attractions is a leaning tower -大钟楼- erected in 1885 by a Chinese builder. It started to tilt four years after its construction finished due to an underground stream. Another attraction is the ‘Batu Tenggek’ -大石头- (Sitting Boulder) which is situated at a junction in the town centre. The rock was believed to be placed by a British soldier and was a size of a matchbox. Over the years, the small rock grew bigger until it reached the size of a boulder.
