My World Tuesday-Al Ain Clock Tower


Al Ain Clock Tower stands at Al Ain Street in Al Ain Town Center. Way back 1960’s; it stood in the same roundabout with falcon atop of a cube shaped clock and with observation room underneath supported by 4 concrete supports and sorrounded with colorful flowers and some fountains. Last June 2004, the old clock tower was removed and the roundabout was replaced by an intersection with traffic lights. You'll find this 'huge clock' along the gardens of  the President's Palace by Sheikh Khalifa.

I wonder why it is still called 'tower', it isn't towering at all. Hmmmnnn, I need to read further about it. Photos shown below are the images of Al Ain Clock Tower at present.

by daylight
by night ( with hubby  hahaha)

  2. That is a magnificent clock and the fountains are a beautiful added feature. The second shot with your hubby shows just how huge the clock really is.
