While driving around the Old Fort area, we came accross the clock. It is located near the Marine Museum and another huge Memorial. We briefly stopped here and take some pictures. Forgot to verify if the time posted by the Clock Tower is accurate.

Hard to imagine that this structure was originally built as a lighthouse on the port of Colombo now that the sea is so far away due to so much land reclamaition. Certainly worth a look if doing the tourist circuit.

This is near the Pettah Market and gets its name from the Khan family of Bombay India who built it in the early 1900s

The clock-tower is located in a roundabout at a very busy intersection and if you want to get close you are placing little value on your life. Much better to remain on the footpaths and 'pedestrian' areas across the street, and hope for an unobstructed photo. The tower dates to 1923 and was erected by the Khan sons as a memorial to their father. Nice structure with a clock that works.

The Khan Clock Tower stands at the entrance of the legendary Pettah Market. Dating back to the early 20th century, the clock tower was established by a Paris family bearing the last name Khan

Located within a round about stands this clock tower, (commonly known to locals, as the entrance to the local market), quite a landmark (cant be missed). Built by a prominent family from india. Probaly not a stand alone attraction, however, worth a look, during a tour of the city.

Not much to see, but a nice-looking clock-tower in the middle of a round-about next to the Pettah. Good for a pic then move on.

The Khan clock tower is just a short walk from the Fort Station and Pettah Market. We came across it by chance.

This imposing building actually looks like a Lighthouse in the middle of a city..odd. So we asked a local and he explained that is was indeed a clock tower.

I don’t think it worth going out of your way for as you can only view it from the outside.
