Rajabai Clock Tower, Mumbai (Bombay)
(4.3/5 based on 170+ 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.

  • Clock tower visible from afar. If you walk around the Kolabe, past the pass. Beautiful architecture, more in the European style. At the foot of a Palm tree and a large field where local cricket team training, just physical education university students. You can make nice pictures.

  • It has become an icon in South Mumbai! Illuminated by beautiful colours at night, it resembles old architecture! 
  • Nice views of tower at the evening and night, at that time lighting is magnificent, makes you feel like Oval or London. Designed by the architect of Big Ben tower, it has clock on all 4 sides

  • 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.
