About Husainabad Clock Tower

Don't miss the Big Ben replica when you are in Lucknow. It was originally commissioned by Nawab Nasir-ud-din Haider to welcome Sir George Couper in 1881. Couper was the 1st Lieutenant Governor at Avadh. The tower today stands as an example of the skill and architecture of the British smithmen. Possibly one of the tallest clock towers in India, it is 67 meters high. Located close to Rumi Darwaza, this tower has signs of Gothic and Victorian architecture. The clock on the tower is made using gunmetal which was brought in to the country from Luigate Hill, London. The tall tower has an equally long pendulum at 14 feet. The dial is designed like a flower with with petals. Bells have been engraved alongside to create an truly artistic tower. Built under the guidance of architect Roskell Payne, this tower is positioned on the banks of Gomti River. Nawab Nasir-ud- Din Haider had commenced the construction of this tower. However, due to his death, the construction came to a halt. The process was re-initiated by Roskell Payne and he renovated the design of this clock tower. The Husainbad clock Tower is visited by a large number of tourists. It is adjacent to the Rumi Darwaza. When visiting the capital city of Lucknow, you can explore all these rich heritage monuments.

Historical Context: It is one of the tallest clock tower in India. It was constructed by Roskell Payne
