Clock Tower

The Clock Tower (Saat Kulesi) the symbol of Izmir, is located at Konak Square in the city hearth.

The tower was built in 1091 to commemorate the 25th year anniversary of the coronation of Ottoman Sultan Abdulhamit II. Its construction was in charge of the architect Raymond Charles Pere. The clock tower is 25 meters high and consists of four levels on an octagonal plan and decorated in an elaborate late Ottoman style. There are fountains on four sides of the tower. The clock itself was a gift of Emperor Wilhelm II of Germany.
