Raipur’s Ghadi Chowk!

It has been a long time since I have seen a clock tower in any city. I am sure that most of the cities around the world have some form of a clock tower either working or in ruins.

But, we either take such places for granted or miss them completely in our daily bustle. This clock tower at Raipur is in the heart of the city and it has been maintained very well.

Locally known as ‘Ghadi Chowk’, this place is actually considered an important landmark in Raipur and most people, even in this technological era, synchronize the time on their watches with that of this clock tower.
