Shamsolemareh Clock to Chime Again

Restoration work at the famous Shamsolemareh Clock in Golestan Palace in south Tehran is in the final stages and it will chime again in late August.
The clock, the finest edifice on the eastern wing of Golestan Palace and the first high rise in Tehran, will start working again, Mehr News Agency reported on its Persian website.
Last time the clock was repaired was in April 2017, and it revived the device from its 90-year slumber. The famous clock was gifted by British Queen Victoria (1819-1901) to Nasser al-Din Shah (1831-1896) of the Qajar Dynasty over a century ago. Its chimes annoyed the people who, at the time, used Golestan Palace as residence and court. In trying to reduce the unfriendly noise they damaged the clock.
