“The one and only in the world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

This is the only clock tower in the world with a light house in the middle of a capital city which works even up to date. If you are in Colombo go and visit. Vehicles are not permitted but you can walk up to this point.

“Entry to Pettah”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

The clock tower marks the entry point to Pettah, which is the only place that could resemble a place in India! Pettah is busy, crowded, less organised and less clean. However, if you brave it, there are loads of shopping to do, and it is CHEAP!

The clock tower is built on a site of a church which was built in 1602. The clock tower was financed by a family from Bombay, India is the early 20th Century.
