  • Its a 18th century clock tower, nothing much. Saw it from the car itself. Nothing great.Very tall indeed  more »
  • Clock towers are important in Indian towns this one was broken. They are building a park around it but good luck with keeping it clean. Colonial build of moderate interest  more »
  • Interesting and surprisingly well preserved. The base of the tower is a cricket play ground. Fun to play with the kids.  more »

  • Nice lucknow ki shaan
  • The highest clock tower in india. Stands lofty on the bank of river gomti. And it is red color. In british architecture style.
  • 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
