Pulau Sialu Light Beacon in Batu Pahat. 

This light beacon has been in existence for a while now on this islet which the locals called Pulau Sialu. Pulau Sialu is visible from nearby Segenting or Minyak Beku. This light beacon was retired from service back in the 1970s and a new light house constructed with funds from the Nippon Foundation came into service in 1978.

Today, Pulau Sialu is no longer inhabited. But the Light beacon remains, a structure that I hope the Maritime Department will preserved it well in the decades to come.
