Clock Tower, Tel Aviv

4.0
Watching over the northern entrance of the ancient town of Jaffa, Clock Tower remains as a testament to the Ottoman period. Constructed as one of seven in Palestine to honor the silver jubilee of the reign of Sultan And al-Hamid II, the tower was completed in 1903. Approach the limestone landmark from across its busy thoroughfare, noting the commemorative plaque dedicated to the memory of Israelis killed in the First Arab-Israeli War.

  • The Clock Tower sits on the highest ground of the Old Jaffa City, this is a popular area for wedding photos. From the top of the small hill, where the Clock Tower is, is a great place to get a panaram...  more »
  • This famous clock tower is simply old Jaffa to do this but I would describe them now as the main attraction of Jaffa. The tower is located between two busy streets, the area around the Tower radiates a unique atmosphere.

  • I know this shows up on tourist maps and it's a decent photo op but it was underwhelming. I wouldn't recommend going out of your way  more »

  • Pretty good clock tower. The time seemed accurate but the clock face itself is pretty small. Compared to big Ben it's not very impressive but compared to other towers it's not bad. Would visit again if in the neighborhood.
  • Historic place. Good for an evening stroll. When you have a good local guide, you get the most out of it.
  • Cool clock tower with some intersting history behind it. Mostly just used as a meeting place now for tour groups. Plenty of shops and restaurants around the area though.
  • One of the places that you have to visit while you're in the town. Try to find the story of the building, it's quite fun.
  • My family and I spent the last few hours of our  vacation exploring Jaffa Port before heading to airport. Enjoyed the series of boardwalks extending along the beach, the ancient buildings, souvenir shops, Cafes and  took in  the rich history of this beautiful landmark. My favorite part of our rendezvous was the view up at the pinnacle of Jaffa. The incomparable backdrop of the Mediterranean Sea, the view Tel Aviv was picturesque, well the 360 view was breathtaking.
