“Clock Tower - Mahe Victoria”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

This clock tower is the symbol of Victoria. It resemble the famous London Landmark. Actually nothing much of this clock tower, just that it seem to be in the center of the Victoria city.

“Seychelles Clock Tower”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The Seychelles Clock Tower was erected during the Colonial days year 1903 by the British Empire. That particular day for the inauguration it was a major event in the capital of Victoria where the whole population gathered from all over Mahe the main Island for this patriotic occasion. It is a memorial of the late Queen Victoria Alexandrina. The Clock Tower have four faces and it is a replica of another Clock Tower at Victoria Station in Vauxhall England. It is nick name the little Big Ben!! Apparently the original colour was black but it was then painted in aluminium silver much more attractive and bright colour. It was also declared a National Monument in 1989. It is one great attraction that stand in the center of Victoria, an Icon of the colonial days. Most tourist visiting Victoria would not past without taking a picture. A souvenir of Seychelles.

“Time!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

So useful. I forgot my watch and still I could tell the time no matter what side of the clock tower I was standing on (4 faces. Revolutionary). If it weren't for the clock tower everyone in Seychelles would be late for all their pressing engagements.
In terms of aesthetics its a beautiful blend of classical European architecture with a futuristic twist, its silver paint blending old and new seamlessly.
