Rajabai Clock Tower, Mumbai (Bombay)

(4.3/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Modeled after Sir George Gilbert Scott’s Big Ben and covered with ornate carvings, Rajabai Clock Tower boasts exquisite stained glass windows. Wealthy broker Premchand Roychand (founder of Bombay’s stock exchange) built the clock in 1869 to help his blind mother Rajabai know when it was dinner time, with the bells chiming every evening at the precise time. Today, the clock chimes every 15 minutes. A square shape at ground level, the 85 m (280 ft) high tower transforms to an octagon as it rises, with a spiral staircase inside (closed to visitors due to several accidents). Enter the gallery on the first floor to admire the tower’s ornate figurines. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Mumbai (Bombay) holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Rajabai Clock Tower and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • It is a tall building where there is an ancient beautiful clock. The clock is very much visible from a large distance also. 
  • this elegant building is made more elegant by the contrast of old and new tower blocks, side by side, it just works,,,,,,, 
  • Nice passage to do during a walk, in front there is a large park where you can see young and less young to cricket practice. I would recommend both

  • One of Mumbai's iconic towers. Can't miss this on your walk at Oval.
  • The clock tower of Mumbai. Beautiful building and premises. A part of the Mumbai University.
  • The tower is beautiful at night time. A really amazing monument to see in South Mumbai!
  • A great monument in bombay. Tribute to British architect. Makes feel in London.
  • Good place to watchout. Should have clock on all 4 sides. Nevertheless looks good.
