Jayanagar gets a new landmark

Jayanagar has a new landmark — a 61-foot-tall clock tower, Ambara Chumbana, erected near the South End Circle.

Built by the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) at a cost of Rs 90 lakh, the tower is equipped with lights to radiate a different colour each day corresponding to the astrology chart. On Monday, it will display white lights; red on Tuesday, green on Wednesday, yellow on Thursday, blue on Friday, dark blue on Saturday and pink on Sunday.

The tower chime, expected to be heard in a two to three km radius, will ring from 6 am to 11 pm.

Inaugurating the tower, Bangalore South MP Ananth Kumar said the structure symbolised the ‘development mantra’ of the BJP government in Karnataka.

Deputy Chief Minister R Ashoka highlighted the special budgetary allocation for the City, along with women and child welfare programmes. He said the clock tower would become a new landmark of Bangalore South.
