As I like to call it the clock less tower. This landmark does have historical significance as it was constructed during British Rule but now its in a very state.

At the foot of hillock nearby with many famous buildings lies GHANTA GHAR (THE CLOCK TOWER) famous,busy, hub of all trade & commerce and gateway to bustling bazars & central fish,meat,vegetable market.Once there was famous HaAFEEZ cinema on one side now turned into shopping arcade ,opposite to it is Al Habib Hotel & Restaurant centre for tasty food lovers at evening.Nearby is prepartition day's IMPERIAL cinema.In our youth years we enjoyed many famous movies in these cinema houses.The population & the traffic on roads have incresed many folds which makes it difficult to move around.There were many shops around this clock tower including famous "Sindh Photo Studio" where myself visited for our camera film developing/printing & pictures.But all these shops have been demolished to make the roundabout spacious for traffic.Nearby area is used for parking of the vehicles.On eastern side is uphill road which approaches the MASOOM SHAH MINARET but this road is rightly used for one way downward traffic since beginning.The clock tower erected by wise British administrators is proof of their worthy dedication in reforming & developing the society of this area.People of Sindh still praise the noble services of ANGREZ BADSHAH (English Kings) by remembering their reformed time/period before Independence & creation of Pakistan.
