This clock tower is one of the iconic landmarks of Galle City. The clock tower is basic, nothing special but the view from this clock nothing is so spectacular that it will take your breath away. Nevertheless, this iconic structure is absolutely well-preserved.

As with the lighthouse this is another well preserved building but nothing to write home about. When here you should go see it (mostly to get up and enjoy the view).

This is also another landmark of Galle Fort which is very much visible from the main road due to its height

Useful landmark at Galle Fort, but not much more to get excited about. If I'm not mistaken, the clock was showing the incorrect time when I visited!
