Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

there are only 21 water clocks in the world today and souk sharq is home to one of them - this eye-catching timepiece, constructed by professor bernard gitton, is located in the central hall, and is he only one of its kind in the gulf - it’s a must-see for anyone coming to Souk sharq - the ancient greeks called this service “clepsydra” which literally means “water thief” and it is one of the oldest ways to measure time - standing at 5.5m high, its beautiful simplicity contrasts with the hustle and bustle of today’s world - so, stand for a moment and let its gorgeous tranquility relax you.
