Every city in the Ottoman Empire seems to have been gifted with a clock tower in the early 20th century. Aleppo was no exception. Its clock tower was designed in Ottoman-Baroque style, typical of the late 19th/early 20th century. It is located just outside the old city limits at Bab al-Faraj area. Seen in the attached photo is the clock tower, with the recently opened Sheraton Hotel in the background.
Just when you are in the middle of a busy street with vehicles honking their horns and people everywhere you come across this stunning clocktower - just there in the middle of a busy street! I just had to take a pic as it was stunning - located in the new town.
This clock tower which situate along Sharia Bab al-Faraj, in Aleppo new city can give you some bearings of the budget accommodation area in Sharia al-Dala.
