A Clock That Did Not Work for 90 Years.
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. www.financialtribune.com
