This is a nice landmark that stands in the middle of Udaipur's shops and bazaar's selling silver jewellery, bangles and such like. It was built in 1876 on the orders of Rana Fatah Singh after reports of grain hoarding by greedy merchants caused a shortage and forced grain prices up. An investigation resulted in those guilty being brought before the Maharana, who, in his wisdom, decided that a suitable punishment would be a hefty fine; the revenue from which was used to build the clock tower.
