The clock tower at Tophane proudly stands in Bursa’s old citadel near the tombs of Osman Gazi and Orhan Gazi.  First built during the reign of Sultan Abdülaziz (1861-1876), the original clock tower was destroyed.  The existing clock tower was rebuilt in 1904 and in recent years was reconstructed to its current condition.  The tower prominently looks out over the city from the edge of the cliff just inside the ruined city walls.  At night, the brightly lit clock tower shines as a beacon in Bursa’s city center.
