A place to spend 5 minutes, nothing special about it, it is called the little Ben in reference to the big Ben in London. Hard and unsafe to access with small children because it is located in the middle of a small roundabout.

Nothing special about this tower except for setting it as a benchmark while travelling from one end of mahe to another. You can skip this attraction!

The history behind it is all otherwise its a small clock tower in the middle of the street. I think it os a copy of a clock in London.

We found our way here. There was a realisation that yes, we had gotten to Victoria what more evidence than taking a picture of the tower. And off we went. Away from the sun and into the nearest shop for refreshment.

You will just simply see it in the middle of the main street in Victoria. It is very simple, not so big and that's it. Not too much to add...

No there isn't much too it, but respect for their important timepiece is due . I've toured from all sides and at best it will make you think about the history and the people . I think that's all they are asking, so. Make sure you get by and take some snappy's !

It's very close to port on a round about. There's nothing much to do here. It's more like passerby can click a snap and move on. Nothing like Big Ben or something.

There's really nothing to it. You will most probably come across this when you travel in Victoria. The only reaction I can come up with, is that it's just okay. Simple mediocre tower clock. It's in the middle of one of the busiest roundabouts in Mahe and it's impossible to take a photo with no car in the background. So,... More

Was not impressed by this monument. It is in the middle of the road and I discovered it while being stuck in my taxi, on the roundabout. It's a landmark. To call it a mini Big Ben is an over statement.

It is only 5 mins walk from the market so it's worth a quick visit for a picture. On the way to the clock, you also enjoy a view of the city's streets and surrounding mountains.
