There are only 21 water clocks in the world today and Sharq Market is extremely proud to be home to one of them. This eye-catching timepiece, constructed by Professor Bernard Gitton, is located in the Central hall (Plaza), and is the only one of its kind in the Gulf. It’s a must-see for anyone coming to Sharq Market. The Ancient Greeks called this service “Clepsydra” which literally means “water thief”, and it is one of the oldest ways to measure time. Standing at 5.5m high, its beautiful simplicity contrasts with the hustle and bustle of today’s world. So, stand for a moment and let its gorgeous tranquility relax you.
