Why Infosys clock will tower over Old Joe and Big Ben
Friday, 05 February 2016 - 14:56
Indian IT giant Infosys has said it plans to build the world's largest free-standing clock tower at its campus in the southern city of Mysore.
When it is ready next year the Gothic-style tower will stand 135m (443 feet) tall, the firm says, dwarfing other clock towers around the world.
Currently the tallest free-standing clock tower is thought to be the 100m-high Old Joe in Birmingham in the UK.
Big Ben in London is just 96m in height (and is not free-standing anyway).
It is not clear if the Infosys clock will chime on the hour, as Big Ben does.
