Heritage Trees in Colonial Town
The Taiping Lake Gardens was formerly an abandoned 160 acres tin mine before 1880. It is the first Malaysia’s public garden developed during the British rule. The ancient Angsana trees along the Raintree Walk took more than 100 years to stretch its branches across the road to the lake surface.
In Oct 2018, many hearts were broken when the second grand old tree toppled over near the location of the photo was taken and the town council is pledging to take all necessary steps to protect the rest of the rain trees. This photo was captured in the early morning when the lovely rays of the sun are shinning.
