A Brief Overview of Clock Tower Jodhpur

Located in the centre of the Sardar Market, Ghantaghar or Clock Tower is one of the most sought after shopping and tourist destinations in Jodhpur. Ghantaghar abodes a beautiful and majestic clock tower which is a famous landmark and marks the start of the old city of Jodhpur. The tower presents a beautiful panoramic landscape of the Blue City from its top. 

There is no better place in the world to shop for these exquisite spices than Jodhpur’s Ghantaghar itself. It provides a truly local experience, with local shops and shoppers everywhere buying fresh vegetables, shopping for saris, spices, etc. It is the best of India’s chaotic market places, with all the amazing colours, flavours and swirling masses that make up this mystical land. 

History of Clock Tower Jodhpur 

Ghanta Ghar was established during Maharaja Sardar Singh’s reign (between late-19th Century and early 20th Century) as a major landmark near the Mehrangarh. 

The Clock was bought from London and is believed to be bought from the company that made the Clock Tower in London. The area gradually became one of the most bustling and busy areas of Jodhpur city. 

Several shops came up, and a marketplace, known as the Sardar Market, was set up, which was named after the Maharaja and, since then, has been a shopper’s delight. During the time, products like spices, vegetables, clothing, tools etc., were available in the market. Today, the scene is relatively modern as a lot more is sold and purchased at this market.
