This Jubilee Clock Tower used to be built to commemorate the diamond jubilee of of Queen Victoria reign. Located just beside of the Pinang sculpture for sure gonna be a nice spot for picture. Nothing much here, just a heritage building.

Had some time to spare on our way back to the cruise terminal and visited this wonderful monument/clock to days past. Must have even a beacon to all travellers half a century ago and older.

The clock tower is a nice piece of colonial architecture, but would not be worth a special visit in itself. Instead, when you visit For Cornwallis, you can get a good view from one of the corners ramparts.

It is one of the important landmark in Georgetown that is part of its history. It is a good example of the old British architecture and design that the area is known for. Take time to read the plaque to know more about it.
