Clock Monument at Alor Setar

This is actually not a clock tower but just a monument. I saw this at the junction of Jalan Tunku Ibrahim and Jalan Sultan Badlishah in Alor Setar.

The monument depict the culture of the city as a rice bowl of Malaysia. The four pillars that support this clock is in the shape of a "Kuku Kambing" or literally translates goats hoofs. This implement is used by the padi farmer to plant young padi plant into the ground during transplanting season. Nowadays this implement id very rare since transplanting is not popular anymore. Padi seeds are just scattered onto the fields instead of using a nursery.
