The Taiping Prison

 

Home of the infamous

Built in 1879, the Taiping prison is the first prison in Malaysia.

The need of such establishment arose due to the rising rate of crime during that era.

The fighting between Chinese secret societies at the tin mines led to the construction of the present Taiping prison. 

The prison also exhibits and sells handicrafts made by inmates.
