  Old Clock Tower (Sahat Kula)
by HORSCHECK
 
 

Prizren's Clock Tower (Sahat Kula) was errected in 1870 by Eshref Pasha. During Ottoman times it showed the Islamic people the prayer times and shopkeepers when to open and close their shops.

In 1912 the clock and bell were removed from the tower. Nowadays the Clock Tower and the galleries of the adjacent Turkish bath house the Archeological Museum.

Directions: The Clock Tower stands somewhere behind the Church of Our Lady of Ljevis, which can be found in the north western part of Prizren's city centre on the right side of the Lumbardhi River.
