Labu Sayong Sculpture

Labu Sayong is a famous traditional water container made in clay that produced at Sayong, near the royal town of Perak, Kuala Kangsar. It is normally burnt to black that gives the ability to cool its content quickly. There are beautiful engraved patterns on Labu Sayong that makes it a unique & attractive handicraft product. The authorities have put this giant sculpture of Labu Sayong (although not as beautiful as a real one) many years ago at the roundabout of Silibin Road & Jelapang Road conjunction as street decoration. This is also promoting the product which is pride of Perak. It even serves as a local landmark that guides visitors who are entering from Jelapang gateway towards city center.
