About Clock Tower

The Clock Tower is one of the most important landmarks in Dehradun, visited by hundreds of tourists as well as locals every day. Though it stands in isolation from the other places of tourist relevance in the city, it is actually encircled by the commercial centers of the city as well as by a number of shops. Chakrata Road, Paltan Bazar Road, Rajpur Road and Haridwar Road meet at the Clock Tower and are easily accessible from here. The Clock Tower is one of its kind and is marked by fantastic architecture. It has six faces with a clock on each face, and its unique hexagonal shape lends it the heritage value it is known for. Also, the tower has names of various freedom fighters of Dehradun inscribed in gold plaque. The tower is, however, not functional now but there was a time when the chime of the clock was audible at far-off distances from the commercial center. Even though not functional, it remains a popular tourist attraction in Dehradun.

Historical Context: The establishment of the foundation of Clock Tower dates back to July 2, 1948, which is owed to the then Governor of Uttar Paradesh, Sarojini Naidu. It took about 5 years to be completed, and was inaugurated in the year 1953.
Pro Tip: Wear light and comfortable clothes and footwear for your visit to Clock Tower.
