Sialkot Clock Tower

Sialkot, located in the province Punjab, Pakistan, is an ancient city dating back to some 5000 years. Its mention is made in history when it was invaded by by Alexander the Great in 327 AD. Presently it is thriving business city with specialties in sports and surgical instruments. The footballs for the World Cup are also manufactured here.

 

The Sialkot Clock Tower, located in the cantonment, was build in the 19th century by the British and has recently been renovated. I visited Sialkot in 2007 and shot this magnificent tower.
