Iqbal Square and the Sialkot Clock Tower are synonymous terms, and it is located in Pakistan's Sialkot cantonment's Saddar Bazar.

It is a popular destination for tourists, and because it is in the heart of the city, there is constant activity nearby.


• Observe the tower and learn about the conception:

The British constructed the Sialkot Clock Tower in the 19th century.

Seth Rai Bahadur and Sheikh Ghulam Qadir lay the building's foundation stone. Standing tall for more than a century, the tower has seen several upheavals, tumult, quiet periods, and revolutions.

• Deep dive into the history of the site before the tower came into being:

A Hindu temple allegedly stood next to the Tower, according to historians and elderly locals. Up until 1992, when riots broke out in response to the demolition of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, India, it was an old Temple that was frequently visited by Hindus. The Temple was demolished around that time as well.

• Observe the intersection of two different worlds from this point of view:

The frantic and busy streets of the central city and the well-planned, generally tranquil areas of the cantonment region are held together by the Sialkot Clock Tower like a huge pin. The town relies on its four clock faces to keep track of time and to tell the time.

• Consider it as the Big Ben of Pakistan and get photographed:

A massive clock with hourly chimes is mounted at the summit of the high tower. It is an excellent work of art and architecture that keeps Sialkot and Iqbal's names prominently displayed.

After the Isha prayer, people begin congregating towards this tower.

They as they sit there in true Sialkoti fashion till late at night.
