The Clock Square served as the center of power in the 19th century, as well as an important economic and transportation center. Around the square and the Azurah were built the Saraya house, the Gate of the Rulers, which led to the Mahmudiya Mosque and other buildings. The clock tower is three stories high, covered with kurkar stone and topped with two clocks.
Today the square serves as a tourist site, restaurant and hotel, and a main passage to the flea market to the east of it and to the Jaffa port to its west.
