Faisalabad Clock Tower

The Faisalabad Clock Tower is a clock tower in Faisalabad, Punjab, Pakistan, and is one of the oldest monuments still standing in its original state from the period of the British Raj. It was built by the British, when they ruled much of the South eastern continent during the nineteenth century. The majestic Clock Tower of Lyallpur was constructed out of the funds raised by the Sikh Zamindars who collected it at a rate of Rs. 18 per square of land. The fund thus raised was handed over to the Municipal Committee which undertook to complete the project.

Wonderful - God bless you. You should do other buildings in Faisalabad as well. Soon you could add somethig exciting to your collection: Lyallpur Museum is being built next to the Coronation Library. The Committee supervising the work consists of Dr Aamer Sarfraz (Chairman), Haseeb Athar (Literacy Sec), Dr Touqeer Shah (Sec. to CM) and Saeed Wahllah (DCO). It is hoped that this ambitious project would be inaugurated by summer, 2010.

Excellent work; please keep it up
Visited clock tower recently and was disappointed that it is not being looked after well. When asked around, I heard that the current DCO and this committee is also working to preserve old buildings. Please liaise with them and also add some more pictures of this great town.
