“One look at tower is enough but the spice shop (M.V Spices) is worth a visit”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

With no end to the touts here at the Clock Tower it was pleasant to escape into M.V Spices because they did not push their products apon us and the spices and teas are great. Well worth battling your way through the tout-maze to this shop but make sure you get this one as there are replica shops pretending to be this one by calling themselves similar names.

“A nice clock!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

It is a nice clock tower surrounded by a bustling market - it is somewhere you have little choice but to see as it is right in the heart of the city and where the main activity is but the clock is nothing special and the touts and hawkers are annoying. Be careful of young lads following you around.

“It is what it is”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

The clock tower, gates and surrounding buildings are well maintained and nice to look at, but ultimately all that is there beyond the architecture is a crap market. If you're after spices or the usual souvenirs then this is your place, likewise if you want cheap and horrible clothes and shoes.

“great place for shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Clock tower and extension naisarak are a great place to shop for bed linen, handicrafts etc for home. Those interested in cooking can get awesome spices. the flavor and aroma of home made spices is simply great! Jodhpuri jootis(shoes) and leather purses can be purchased from here at great prices. must go place for shopping in Jodhpur.

“Centerpiece of the Sardar Market”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

When you visit the Sardar Market area of Jodhpur, you won't help but notice the tall clock tower in the center of the marketplace.

This is actually a nice looking structure that can be framed quite well in your photos of the market area. Because of the square shape of the market, you can easily find a place where the sun is generally at your back, allowing for nice pictures of this structure.

We also enjoyed seeing the Clock Tower at night time when it changed colors in 5-6 second intervals. This was a bit amusing and made for a few camera clicks.

You can see the Clock Tower by entering the Sardar market directly or you can have a look while you are dining on a rooftop restaurant in or near the market area. We had nice views of the structure from the Nirvana Cafe and decent views from the rooftop restaurant at Indique (Pal Haveli Hotel).

Overall, not a feature attraction but something worth finding and spending a few minutes to inspect during your time in Jodhpur.
