The square is a historical site and was once used as a harbour for many boats traveling between villages along the different rivers like Sungai Kedah, Sungai Anak Bukit, and the Wan Muhammad Saman Canal, considered the longest man made canal in Malaysia, when the river system was the main access inland. It was also the main hub of trade and as a repair area.
The square is now a tourist attraction and during night time, the tower is a favorite subject of local photographers. Dataran Tanjung Chali is located at Jalan Pengkalan Kapal in Alor Setar’s Kedah River waterfront.
