The 60-metre clock tower is in the middle of the square and designed in such a way that it can be seen from all parts of the city

His Highness Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, inaugurated the Clock Tower Square located at the intersection of Al Wahda Street and Corniche Street in Kalba in March 2022.

The tower is surrounded by a series of innovative water fountains, which operate on the clock system. The fountains divide into 12 main fountains representing the number of hours and 60 sub-fountains representing the number of minutes.

The 60-metre clock tower is in the middle of the square and designed in such a way that it can be seen from all parts of the city. The first deck is located on the fifth floor at a height of 33 metres and has a restaurant for visitors. The second is 46 metres above the sea level and offers views of Kalba Lake, University of Sharjah, Kalba Commercial Centre, Kalba Mangroves and the surrounding mountains.

The tower design was inspired by modern Islamic architecture, with a spacious dome covered with gilded mosaic. Various Islamic decorations deck the facades of the building.

The Clock Tower Square project and its surrounding area are provided with parking, safe pedestrian paths, and a tunnel leading to the clock tower with a length of 65.7 metres, which includes a number of murals of the most important ancient and modern landmarks of Kalba.
