Silver Jubilee Clock Tower of Mysore

The iconic clock tower (Dodda Gadiyaara) of Mysore which marked the Silver Jubilee of the Coronation of Maharaja Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV (coronated in 1902) was inaugurated in 1927. This landmark lies within an arm's distance of Dewan Rangacharlu Memorial Town Hall and is bang opposite the Maharaja Chamaraja Wodeyar Circle. 

Bombe Mane 2013 will feature hand carved wooden models of the clock tower in two sizes - 10" and 24". The one featured here is the latter.

I visited Bombe Mane in July '13. Though I have been to Mysore several times from Blr, it was the first visit to Bombe mane. I was impressed with the huge collection and the unique artistic work.
