Clock Tower, Tel Aviv

3.9
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.

  • Looks great. Some nice shops nearby. Easy to get to. Parking is a bit hard but a few car parks around. Worth a visit  more »
  • Bustling area with lots of neat shopping. Very artsy! The clock tower is a beautiful background for pics, too! We found a great little shop with beautiful mezuzahs. Lots of restaurants!  more »
  • Station clock tower, of course, is a well-known attraction. And a kind of reference point on the tourist route from Tel Aviv to the old city of Jaffa. Among the ancient Jaffa attractions Tower doesn't look particularly impressive, since it was built in the early 20th century. However, look at Migdal HA-Clocktower would be interesting ...
