CLOCK TOWER – Almeeraj tourism

CLOCK TOWER

The beautiful marble Clock Tower or Saat Kulesi in Turkish is a landmark of Izmir. It stands out at the center of theKonak
square and has 25 meters high. It was designed by the Levantine French architect Raymond Charles Pere and its ornate was made in late-Ottoman design.

The tower was built in honor of Sultan Abdulhamid in 1901 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of his accession to the throne. The clock itself was sent as a gift from Kaiser Wilhelm II.

The tower features four fountains which are placed around the base in a circular pattern, and the columns are inspired by North African themes.
