The Clock Tower of Hoshiarpur

Hoshiarpur is a sleepy little town in the north-east part of Punjab bordering Himachal. From the tourism point of view it has few Gurudwara's. I also noticed it has a colonial building used as a library and the Hoshiarpur Ghantaghar.

Hoshiarpur Ghantaghar

A ghantaghar means clock tower and one can see clock towers in several colonial towns of India and Pakistan made by the Britishers. Some of the clocks still function in some of these clock towers which I have seen! The shape of all clock towers vary from one place to another. In Hoshiarpur it has been made like a gate under which vehicles can pass whereas in some places these are like towers functioning as roundabouts.

Hoshirapur Clock Tower with Hooter

This Ghantahgar like others is also in the centre of a market but what spoils the view is the electric wires hanging haphazardly. On top of the clock tower is an ancient hooter siren (which I am sure does not work and has somehow also lost its relevance over time) which used to alert the workers about the start and finish time of their daily work in the factories/offices.
