Tel Aviv, Israel
August 30, 2018
Located in Tel Aviv — the cosmopolitan hub in Israel — the Old Jaffa is a vibrant home of historical, cultural, and culinary legacy of its place as it houses scenic alleys, art galleries, ancient buildings, boutiques, and authentic Middle-Eastern restaurants.
At the center of the city is the Jaffa Clock Tower, an iconic structure of limestone situated at the Clock Tower Square in the middle of Yefet Street in Tel Aviv. It was built to commemorate the silver jubilee in Sultan Abdul Hamid II’s leadership. The Jaffa Clock Tower was constructed by the Turkish Ottomans along with the same towers in Acre, Jerusalem, Haifa, Safed, and Nablus.
Completed in 1903, the structure has three levels and four marble seals of the Sultan facing in each direction.
