Clock tower

#16 of 17 things to do in Dehradun

The clock tower in the midst of the city Dehradun is a popular landmark located near Paltan market. Also known among the locals as Ghanta Ghar, it was established during the British reign. The building stands encircled by shops and commercial centres in the middle of the market place, giving it a majestic look. The clock is engraved with the names of freedom fighters in a gold plaque and six faces with a clock in each face. The impressive looking monument, unfortunately, doesn’t work anymore but it is said that previously its chimes could be heard from the end of the city.
