A nice structure. A decent area. We walked by. I was surprised by the amount of colonial architecture around. Maybe I should not have been.

This is one of the tourist spots of Mumbai. It is good to see point rather than a must see point. Takes around 30 min at this spot.

This place, now turned into an University, has a great historical value. Entry to normal civillians inside the premises isn't allowed.

Just a clock tower of historic importance !!! During the British Raj, it played the tunes of "Rule Britannia", "God Save the King", "Home! Sweet Home!" and "A Handel Symphony", out of a total of sixteen tunes, which changed four times a day. It currently chimes only one tune every 15 minutes.

The clock tower is situated in South Mumbai and goes back to pre-Independence time. Its still functional and one of the historical spots for kid/ school students

This clock tower is situated in South Mumbai - and is an emotional reminder of what it was like to live in "Bombay" - a time long before mobile phones or even before digital watches. If you are visiting the southern part of Mumbai - make sure you get to visit this attraction. It will take not more than 10... More
