Am I right to say that the clock in this tower will be the biggest functional clock in the whole world?

Funny Tower. It Almost looks like a crossover between the bell-tower of the big-ben, and a skyscraper of USSR-design.

Yes. If I'm not mistaken, someone had actually confirmed that those two were the inspiration.

How can anyone confirm the inspiration of an architect?

Your saying you actually knew what inspired the architect while he was designing this building?

I got enough from this wali in this forum really.

Man leave us alone and let us discuss this project as we want, There is a debate topic has been opened by admin, go discuss your point of view there.

Yes please show us the post which you got the confirmation about the inspiration? If you can't show it then just get out of this topic and leave us alone you and your sick thoughts.

you forgot the word biggest also!



Anyway the title for the highest clock is a bit subjective, I could have install a simple clock on the office of Emaar Chairman in BD, and i can easily gained that title at the height of 580m above city level.

Why does this not surprise me.

But it is quite funny, i would have expected that for such a holy place they would have desugned a tower with a more arabic design. Nothing is further from the truth in this case.
