This clock tower has been around since the 17th century, when its construction was ordered by Gazi Husrev-Beg, the Ottoman governor of the area during the Ottoman period. At 30 metres tall, it’s also the tallest clock tower in Bosnia. The clock also has the distinction of being the only one I know that keeps to lunar time. Bizarre.

Interesting lunar clock near the Mosque, although you cannot really access the clock tower, you can get a good view from the grounds of the Mosque. Quite unique is the lunar clock,

At 30 meters high, its the tallest clock tower in Bosnia. We didnt try and get access to it but just had a look at it when we could. It is important to the Muslim faith as it sets the prayer times and its face is set to the lunar time for this reason. t is located beside Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque and you can get a good view of it from there.

With a height of 30 meters, this is the tallest clock tower in Bosnia. The clock faces show lunar time which means they are set to show 12 o’clock at sunset

The clock tower can be seen from most of the city. It's set to lunar time to help with the call to prayer. The photo I've added is taken from the mosque's courtyard.

The clock tower is part of the skyline and hard to miss, however harder to find its base, which is located In a courtyard, accessed by a darkened small passage, (which is also home to Pekara (bakery) Imerat, we were especially taken with the pizza, see review), the clock and it location, next to the mosque is very important, to worshippers, as it sets the pray times.

Sited in a small courtyard close to the Gazi Huzrev-Beg Mosque in the heart of the old town, the clock tower is designed to show the lunar time, guiding the faithful to prayer. As it can be seen clearly from all vantage points within the old town it serves as a useful marker to find your way around if lost within the narrow streets. Sadly it is not possible to enter the building itself, only to view it from the outside.

This tower is located at one edge of the old town and can be seen from all around. Useful landmark if one gets lost in the myriad narrow streets nearby. Illuminated at night.

This clock is located almost in the center of the town. I would of loved to enter the clock town but we were not allowed to enter on the day we visited. This is a landmark this is rich in culture and history.
