Chennai photo quiz 10

the clock tower in chennai, look familiar? perhaps a little too easy?


This one should be interesting 😀  Name the place.

 Answer Its the Mint Clock tower at Vallalar Nagar – Shiva

Although at first glance, looks like the Royapettah clock tower, its got quite a few differences, most prominent being its new coat of paint and the fact that its better maintained.

The Royapettah Clock Tower

    Triplicane clock tower? Cannot be Royapettah.

    The only other clock tower that looks like this one is in Purasaiwalkam/Vepery, but that one has a flyover running all around it. Which’s not visible in this photo.

    So I am going to guess this is the clock tower in Triplicane.

    i knew this would be interesting. Nope, not Triplicane, and i never knew we had a clock tower there either. i stumbled upon this one by accident really, and for a moment i thought i’d found some secret passage to Royapettah 😀

    Now this is just a wild guess.. Any chance it is the clock tower at Mint a.k.a Vallalar Nagar? I have been travelling there these past few weeks, so I felt it could be that one…

  4. Giridhar says :

    this is the royapettah clock tower

  5. Ravages says :

    I am not sure this is the Royapettah CT. It went through a bit of a facelift last year, grey paint dabbed on and a bit of trimming around.

    My office for a year and half was in the Royapettah area and I had to pass through the clock tower there often.

    It doesn’t look like the RPT-CT’s clock face either.

    But then, I could be very wrong and my observation powers are pathetic.

    Its near stanley hostipal in mint

  7. Navneeth says :

    How can it be Roypettah? PlaneMad already said that he thought he’d found some secret passage to Royapettah. Obviously, then, this isn’t the RCT.

    Oh, yeah…Hi, I’m Navneeth. 🙂

  8. planemad says :
