Husainabad Clock Tower, Lucknow Overview

Standing tall adjacent to the Rumi Darwaza, the Husainabad Clock Tower was built in 1881 and since has been the tallest clock tower in India. It is 67 meters high, displaying Victorian-Gothic brilliance with a 14 feet long pendulum and a dial in the shape of a 12 petalled flower.

It was only in 2010 that this manually operated clock was upgraded to an electrical clock. Towards the end of 2011, this clock gradually made the tall clock tower metal noise after 27 years.

This four-faced structure of the clock is said to have been replicated based on the famous clock tower in Englan, the Big Ben. This tower is surrounded by vegetable and fruit vendors even local food stalls. There is also a Husainabad reservoir nearby
