Wordless Wednesday: Lighthouses of Malaysia (Series 2)

'Wordless Wednesday: Postcard' is recording all the postcards that I had bought from time to time for exchange purpose.

Throughout Peninsular Malaysia's 2,068 kilometers of coastline, there are 11 lighthouses operating to provide guidance for navigation. According to the Marine Department of Malaysia, a lighthouse is defined as " a permanent structure constructed on a prominent location, with a light at the top to provide guidance for navigation, and a building to accommodate supporting equipment and living spaces." The lighthouses are managed by the Marine Department of Malaysia and supported by the Light Deus Board.

I purchased this series of postcard in Pos office by 1 set RM 4.00.
