Stands like an icon

It has become an icon in South Mumbai! Illuminated by beautiful colours at night, it resembles old architecture!

Nice views of tower at the evening and night, at that time lighting is magnificent, makes you feel like Oval or London. Designed by the architect of Big Ben tower, it has clock on all 4 sides

This is being maintained well and does help as a landmark in the area. There are cricket fields nearby so makes for an inviting neighborhood to walk around in.

This is part of the Mumbai University and definitely worth seeing on a walk along the oval maidan along with the High Court.

This tower is part of the Bombay University Fort campus and houses the library. Although no one else is allowed to go beyond the first couple of stories. But there has always been stories since very long about the presence of ghosts. Not sure, if its true or not, but yes, its not a place to venture late at night.... More

The clock tower is appealing for tourists. The architecture is really impressive as it belongs to the historical times of India.

An architectural marvel with beautiful stone work. The story behind it is that the person who had it built, did so for his mother who could no longer see the timee due to her failing eyesight. So the chimes of the clock tower would tell her the time of the day.
