  Nonthaburi City Clock Tower

 

Thailand

The Nonthaburi City Clock Tower is an eye-catcher for anyone arriving in this municipality just north of Bangkok. It was built in 2500 BE, that is 1957 AD, and is located in front of the city centre's boat wharf and adjacent to the Old City Hall (fig.). Although on top of the tower stands a giant cock, it is today the clock's bell that strikes to remind the local citizens of the time.
