Highlights

  1. 135 metres high clock tower to be built at Infosys campus, Mysuru
  2. Architect Hafeez Contractor will design the Gothic-style structure
  3. The project is estimated to cost Rs 60 crore
Look out world, the tallest free-standing clock tower will be built in the Southern Indian city of Mysuru by none other than IT giant Infosys, reports BBC. The tower will be 135 meters high and will give serious shade to others of its kind, like the Old Joe in Birmingham (100 metres) and Big Ben in London (96 meters).

The structure will be built at Infosys' 345-acre Mysuru campus on a 22x22 meters base in Gothic style. The architecture will match the classical look of the other buildings on campus, Infosys told BBC. However, the old-fashioned face of the structure will have state-of-the-art digital technology.

Architect Hafeez Contractor, who designed the Mysuru campus, will be designing the clock tower as well, reports Hindustan Times.

"A clock tower brings a sense of academic breathing to the campus, and I felt we too will need one. And Vishal (Sikka, Infosys CEO) felt it is a good idea," NR Narayana Murthy, co-founder of Infosys, told The Economics Times.

The project is estimated to cost about Rs 60 crore and will take up to 20 months to complete, suggest reports.
