The Clock Tower or Ghanta Ghar can be found near the Jagdish Temple. Built by Fatah Singhji in 1876, it is located in the heart of the old city. Revenue for the tower came from greedy merchants which forced a shortage of grain and an increase of prices. They were fined a hefty amount which was then used to build the tower. This was Udaipur?s first public clock. Prior to this the community was aware of the start and finish of each working day by a canon firing from Eklingarh Fort.

The Clock Tower Bazaar is one of the largest wholesale market for textiles, spices vegetables.
