After Brisbane it is largest clock tower in world (as per people saying) you can see it when you are near badaimambara
Located at husainabad. British time clock tower. only 1 KM from chock and Imambara is within 1 KM from this place.
Traditionally known as Ghanta Ghar. Another marvel of ancient architecture. Must stop a few minutes to observe the same.
Why is this building always locked up? Allow tourists to climb up. Or at least get inside and have a look around. Otherwise, I'm sorry but it's no "attraction".
The building is standing next to picture gallery and not very far from Chota Imambada. From from here is really beautiful
Very grand building. Not able to see inside due to constructing activities
it is my lavish life before 2 years
