Izmir Clock Tower (Saat Kulesi)

Izmir Clock Tower (Saat Kulesi)
This historic clock tower is located in the Konak Square in the city centre of Izmir and was designed by the Levantine French architect Raymond Charles Père, and built in 1901 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the accession to the throne of Abdülhamid II (1876–1909).
The clock itself was a gift from German Emperor Wilhelm II (1888–1918) and is decorated in an elaborate Ottoman style.

The tower has an iron and lead skeleton, stands 25m high and features four şadırvan (fountains) which are placed around the base in a circular pattern with columns of a Moorish design.
The clock tower appeared on the back of  the Turkish 500 lira banknote from 1983 to 1989 and these style of clock towers can be seen in other Ottoman provinces particularly those in the Balkans and are called Sahat Kula.
