The clock tower in 2015

The Sialkot Clock Tower also known as Iqbal Square, is situated in Saddar Bazar, Sialkot Cantt, Pakistan. It acts like a giant pin, holding the crazy and bustling streets of the main city and the well--planned, relatively tranquil portions of the cantonment area together. Standing tall for more than a century, the tower would have been witness to many a time of upheaval and change. Sheikh Ghulam Qadir and Seth Rai Bahadur laid its foundation stone . In the company of its four clock faces that still keep track of the passing minutes. It has been renovated many a times but the original structure is not changed. There used to be a Hindu temple, right next to it; but, it was torn down during 1992 riots when Babri Masjid in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, India was dismantled.
