Yıldız Saat Kulesi



Built by Sultan Abdülhamid II in 1890 in the garden of the Yıldız Hamidiye Mosque, the Yıldız Clock Tower is an octagonal three-storey structure. The first floor has four separate inscriptions; the second floor contains a thermometer and barometer; the top floor is a clock room, and there is a compass rose on the roof. The clock was repaired in 1993.
