Named after the financer Sri Chennagiri Rangappa, this is a must visit if you are in the city of Davengere. The tower serves as an important landmark of the city ever since it was built in 1937. The Clock tower is located within Davangere city limits.
It has a length of 75 ft. whose foundation was led by the then Deewan of Mysore, Sir Mirja Ismail. The blue-toned monumental tower is surrounded by a busy marketplace. When it was built initially, it was running on a mechanical clock which has now been replaced by a HMT solar clock.
The market around the tower provides a place for people to shop all kinds of items like fruits, vegetables, clothes, household things etc. There are even Jewllery stores as well as food stalls for people to grab quick bites.
There is no specific timings to visit the tower as its open 24hrs but best advised to go before the sun goes down. Recommend two-wheelers near this area since the roads are very narrow.
