The Clock Tower (Sahat Kulla), built in the year 1597 in the historic centre of the Grand Bazaar at the place known as “Field of the Clock” (Clock Valley, near the Grand Bazaar), shortly after construction of the Hadumi mosque. In 1912, the tower was burned by Montenegrin military forces during the Balkan Wars), while the belfry was removed and transported to Montenegro. With sides 4.10 metres long and a height of about 30 metres, a new clock tower was built later near the foundations of the previous one. Constructed mainly of stone with the wooden observation area and the roof covered in lead, the clock tower is unique of its kind.
