Rajabai Clock Tower, Mumbai (Bombay)

(200+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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.
