The Victoria Bridge is the oldest railway bridge in Malaysia, situated in Karai, at the state of Perak. Constructed between 1879 and 1900 by the Perak State Railway, the bridge was used as a crossing over the Perak River to serve the local tin mining industry. The bridge was officially opened in 1900 by the late Almarhum Sultan Idris Shah I of Perak and the British's Federated Malay States Residents-General Sir Frank Swettenham.
