The Clock Tower is located on K. V. Road which is the heart of the city. The tower was constructed to honour the coronation of King George V. This tower is dedicated to the 14 English soldiers out of the 22 soldiers who went to fight in the World War I (1914–1918). These 14 English soldiers lost their lives while fighting in the First World War.
The Clock Tower is an interesting place to visit for travellers travelling to Vellore. It has a historic lineage to follow. Presently, the Clock Tower building is converted as the main flower market on Long Bazaar.
