Deira Clocktower, originally referred to as the Dubai Clocktower, is a roundabout in Dubai, United Arab Emirates . The Clocktower is located in eastern Dubai in Deira, at the intersection of Umm Hurrair Road and route D 89 . Situated in the locality of Al Rigga, the Deira Clocktower, now a prominent monument in Deira, provides access to the Al Maktoum Bridge, the first land crossing constructed between Deira and Bur Dubai.
Dubai Clocktower was designed by Architect Ziki Homsi, a partner at Architecture Design Construction Office. Also ADC was the builder of the clocktower in 1965.
The Clocktower was erected as a symbol of Dubai and located in Deira because major routes into Dubai converged prior to the building of Dubai - Abu Dhabi Road.
The Deira Clock Tower can be reached by Dubai Metro. The nearest metro station is Al-Rigga on Red Line. The area around Deira clock tower is very important commercially, and includes the offices of major international airlines operating in UAE.

  • The Deira Clocktower is an icon, I have seen it since my childhood and it's a must see place if you're visiting Dubai. It's beautiful, it connects the classic and beautiful area of Deira to the other side of Dubai via the Maktoum Bridge. There are so many big and subtle changes made to this icon over the years, and it has always held a special place for me.
  • It's a very beautiful icon in the middle of Deira. It's in the middle of the roundabout and stands out from far, it looks really nice and pretty at night too. This has put Deira as one of the most liked areas and it's really calm and peaceful when driving past. If you want to go check it out I would recommend going at night as it lights up really nice.
  • Wonderful clock tower at the central roundabout. It looks beautiful at night. The color and contrast is very good. The blue ambiance is the glory of it. I'm sure you'll like it when you pass by it.
  • Not really worth it. It’s just a clock tower that isn’t even really impressive. Don’t get me wrong it’s ok, but not worth walking from union station all the way to there. Also the area is not very pedestrian friendly.
  • An iconic landmark of Dubai that i pass by everyday to and from work and all other times, since I stay nearby. Amazing..
