The ancient Clock Tower, which is 44 meters tall, was built as part of the Kowloon-Canton Railway terminus in Tsim Sha Tsui in 1915. The once-bustling station is now gone, but this red brick and granite tower is still standing as a graceful relic of the Steam Age and is now protected as a Declared Monument. Millions of Chinese immigrants who passed through the terminus on their way to start new lives not only in Hong Kong but also in other parts of the globe have found it to be a memorable monument. The Clock Tower Bell's centennial commemoration chimes can be heard every hour from 8am to midnight.
