Just as the clock tower is the symbol of the University of Auckland, the clock tower here is also the symbol of the University of Otago, and it is also a major symbol of the city of Dunedin. The architectural style of its exterior wall is exactly the same as that of the railway station.
The University of Otago was established in 1869. The school’s clock tower is also a landmark building in Dunedin. The building is modeled after the main building of the University of Glasgow at Xugrand, using contrasting dark basalt and light-colored Oamaru stone as construction materials.
There is no solemn gate, no partitions such as walls, and it is completely integrated. The university clock tower on the side of the road and the ivory landmark building are eye-catching. Without doing my homework, I thought it was a church at first.
Dunedin was a bustling city during the gold rush of the last century. In the early days, most of the urban wastelanders came from Scotland. Most of the ancient buildings in Dunedin had a strong Scottish style, and the clock tower in Dunedin was the same. Dunedin has several representative clock towers, the big clock of the university administration building, the railway station clock tower and the big clock tower of the government administration office in the Octagonal Square.
The main attractions in the city are not far apart, the first thing to look at is the railway station. Walking down the street, you can see the tall bell tower and the graceful and luxurious exterior walls. When I approached, I saw a flyover next to me. I went up and looked at the scene first. I looked left at a passenger car parked in the station. The color of the car was very bright. On the right is the streetscape opposite the station, clean and tidy.
