Rajabai Clock Tower, Mumbai, India

Located in the University of Mumbai campus, the 280-foot-tall (85.3 meters) tower was designed by English architect Sir George Gilbert Scott, who modeled it after the Big Ben. The tower features a beautiful blend of Venetian and Gothic architecture, along with stained glass windows. The cost of the construction, which was completed in 1878, was borne by Premchand Roychand, one of the founders of the Bombay Stock Exchange, and it was named after his mother, Rajabai.
