This clock tower stands besides the Chota Imambara. It is an excellent architectural work by the Nawabs, and a symbol of Lucknow's history. A great picture spot while touring the Chowk area. The the horse carriage ride around this area to get a true feel of the Nawabi era.

Husainabad Clock Tower located at Lucjnow, is one of the tallest clock-towers in the country..Of course,this monument is striking landmark in the city Lucknow, the Capital of Uttar Pradesh.

Located adjacent to the Rumi Darwaza, it is a fine example of English artistic brilliance. This clock tower, made of gunmetal, is an imposing structure in Lucknow that should definitely feature in our itinerary.

The Victorian Gothic clock tower is over 67 meters high with a huge pendulum at a length of 14 feet. The dial of the clock if designed in the shape of a 12-petalled flower with bells around it. We just cannot overlook the architectural wonder of this great tower Surrounding the clock tower is a lush green garden, which contrasts beautifully with this piece of architecture. We can just relax and sit down at this garden admiring the beauty of the City of Lucknow..

In the city of nawabs you will also get to see clock tower.. this looks really stunning anytime you visit this.. it is said that it was constructed in 1881. The building is historic, one is allowed to go inside the clock tower one can easily watch from outside and get your picture clicked by posing like you are holding the top of clock tower..

This is located in a rather run down area of town where there many slum type dwellings. The clock itself was interesting - being made from gun metal - but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit it,
