Sahat Kula


Sahat Kula in Podgorica, Montenegro. Sahat Kula means watch tower. Sahat Kula is located at Bećir Beg Osmanagić square, in the Stara Varoš neighborhood. It is one of the very few Ottoman landmarks that survived the bombing of Podgorica in World War II. Sahat Kula was built in 1667, by Hadži-paša Osmanagić, a prominent citizen of Podgorica. Its current turret clock mechanism was made in 1890 by Pietro Colbachini foundry in Bassano del Grappa, Italy, after Podgorica was incorporated into Montenegro. Around the same time, a metal cross was installed at the top of the tower, symbolizing transfer of the city from the Ottomans into the hands of Christian Montenegrins. Today, Sahat kula is an important cultural monument of Montenegro, protected by law. The clock was renovated when new electric mechanism was installed, as old one is kept for historic significance only.
