Until recently this 127 year old clock tower was in a state of neglect and decay. It became a hangout for the hobos, junkies and drunks. The plastering on the tower was peeling off and there was a thick growth of vegetation sprouting from the cracks. One could see the growth of moss all around the structure. Now, this heritage structure is back to glory and in October 2018, the clock started ticking after a long gap. Thanks to the restoration work undertaken by GHMC as part of the Charminar Pedestrian Project (CPP).
The five major clock towers in the city, namely the ones at Moazzam Jahi Market, Shah Ali Banda, Monda Market, Sultan Bazaar and Mahboob Chowk, have been lying defunct for several years. The GHMC began the restoration work on Mahboob Chowk Clock Tower after several,complaints.
