Deira Clocktower (Arabic: دوار الساعة ديرة), originally referred to as the Dubai Clocktower, is a roundabout in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). The Clocktower is located in eastern Dubai in Deira, at the intersection of Umm Hurrair Road and route D 89 (Al Maktoum Road). Situated in the locality of Al Rigga, the Deira Clocktower, now a prominent monument in Deira, provides access to the Al Maktoum Bridge, the first land crossing constructed between Deira and Bur Dubai.For Deira Clock Tower and beyond, use our Dubai tour app to get the most from your Dubai vacation.
The Dubai clock tower was built in 1965
and was designed by Architect Ziki Homsi, a partner at Architecture Design Construction (ADC) Office. Also ADC was the builder of the clocktower in 1965.
The Clocktower was erected as a symbol of Dubai and located in Deira because major routes into Dubai converged prior to the building of Dubai - Abu Dhabi Road.
The Deira Clock Tower can be reached by Dubai Metro. The nearest metro station is Al-Rigga on the Red Line. The area around Deira clock tower is very important commercially, and includes the offices of major international airlines operating in UAE.
The Telegraph newspaper listed Dubai Clock Tower among the 17 most beautiful clock towers around the world.

The Deira Clocktower is an icon, I have seen it since my childhood and it's a must see place if you're visiting Dubai. It's beautiful, it connects the classic and beautiful area of Deira to the other side of Dubai via the Maktoum Bridge. There are so many big and subtle changes made to this icon over the years, and it has always held a special place for me.
It's a very beautiful icon in the middle of Deira. It's in the middle of the roundabout and stands out from far, it looks really nice and pretty at night too. This has put Deira as one of the most liked areas and it's really calm and peaceful when driving past. If you want to go check it out I would recommend going at night as it lights up really nice.
