The Jubilee clock tower in Georgetown is historic in the fact that it was from Queen Victoria's era. It is located on a round-a-bout at an extremely busy intersection of roads. It is close to Fort Cornwallace and Penang's esplanade.

This beautiful well maintained tower is a must see in Georgetown, a beacon in the world heritage part of the city and a souvenir of the colonial period, good to think about our behavior in history!

The Juilee Clock Towe is a grand local structure for all to view. Walk around it or see it and photograph it from the Hop On Hop Off Bus.

This is the landmark of the Penang as well as the historical clock tower that still displayed the correct time. Take note when you pass by even by car.

located near Fort Cornwells, you'll pass this tower as you head to Fort Cornwells. It is well preserved and an icon.

Colonial feature and landmark of the town. Interesting stories on the design. Slightly leaning due to disturbed foundation. Built to celebrate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee - hence 60 feet high with 6 steps at base (one for each decade).
