Where

The Clock Tower, Tel Aviv, District, Israel

The other clock towers were built in Safed, Acre, Nazareth, Haifa, Nablus and Jerusalem and all, except for the one in Jerusalem, stand until this day. The Jaffa Clock Tower is one of Jaffa’s landmarks and is located on Yeffet Street at the northern entrance of Jaffa, near to the Flea Market.

The Jaffa Clock Tower is the starting point of most tours around Jaffa. In fact, there is a free tour of Jaffa, given by the municipality, every Wednesday that starts out from the Clock Tower at 9:30a.m. There is no need to sign up in advance, just show up on the day.

The tower is made of limestone, incorporates four clocks and a plaque commemorating those who fell in the battle for the town in the 1948 war. It was built by a Turkish Sultan, to commemorate the silver jubilee of his reign and the Arab and Jewish residents of the city contributed towards the building.

The Clock Tower was built between 1900 and 1903 and apart from the seven clock towers built around Israel, close to a hundred similar clock towers were built throughout the Ottoman Empire at this time due to the celebration of the Sultan. In 1965 the Jaffa Clock Tower was renovated, colourful mosaic windows that described the history of Jaffa were added and new clocks were installed.
