Izmir Clock Tower

Izmir Clock Tower is one of the first ones that comes to mind when you mention the symbol location in Izmir, one of the cities on the Aegean Sea coast of Turkey. In a way, the Izmir Clock Tower is what the Maiden Tower and Galata Tower are for Istanbul. The clock tower, located opposite the governor's office building in Konak district, also attracts attention for its historical importance. In honor of the 25th anniversary of his accession to the throne, for Ottoman Sultan 2.Abdülhamit, it was built by the three leading figures in the administration of the city who were the Governor Kamil Pasha of Cyprus, the mayor and brigadier of navy, which is a brigadier in today's rank. An octagonal plan clock tower with cut stones on a white marble platform is 25 meters high and has 4 floors. The baklava-slice reliefs of the Izmir Clock Tower are remarkable. The clock tower, built in orientalist style, which can be dedicated to North Africa when examined together with the titles, arches and details of the columns in a manner closely related to the political conjuncture of the period, is also famous for its stones brought from Ephesus and Sarayköy used in its construction. Each of its 4 watches, which were recorded as gifts by German Emperor 2. Wilhelm, has exactly 75 cm diameter. Interestingly, the clocks, which were damaged in the 5.2 magnitude earthquake at 02.04 in 1974, were repaired again in 1976 and continued to serve.
