A nice piece of history and easy to find. It's an easy stroll and close to lots of nice local restaurants and cafes.
amazing clock history
The view from the Atkinson Clock Tower of the city and coast is pretty great. It's one of the oldest in town and it survived World War II! A short walk up to here is a good work out as well. One of the must places to check out in KK.
The Atkinson Clock Tower is one of the oldest and very few structures in Sabah that survived the wreckage caused by World War II. Situated on a bluff along Signal Hill Road, this wooden clock tower was built in 1905 in memory of Francis George Atkinson. He was the first District Officer of Jesselton during the British North Borneo Chartered Company Administration. Till this very day, the clock still functions perfectly and keeps time for the people of Kota Kinabalu.
This Atkinson Clock Tower was built in 1905 by his mother to memory his son who died in the age of 26 because of Malaria.
Frankly this is not worth even 2 minutes of your life The police station and construction site at the door of the monument are more interesting!
Originally known as Atkinson Memorial Tower, this is Kota Kinabalu’s oldest standing structure along Signal Hill Road.
There are lots of good restaurants nearby and it is on the way to an observatory. If you are in the area you can look at it, but not with going out of your way for.
Stopped off for a quick look. Parked at the carpark further uphill. Signs say the clock tower has been restored, so doesn't look like it did originally. Still old piece of history of Jesselton.
This pre-World War II Wooden Structure is still standing tall and working fine to tell us the Time in the City is our pride !
