University City clocktower

Sharjah University City occupies a vast campus outside the city not far from the international airport. Several educational institutions are based here, including Sharjah American University, the white domed building visible in the distance. A wide dual carriageway with lawns, shrubbery, palm trees and French style lanterns leads from a roundabout with an ornate clocktower.

The clocktower is crowned with a mosque-style dome and has islamic arches and embelishments, but it also bears a strong restmblance to London's Big Ben. This is a far cry from European university campuses - you need an air-conditioned car to get comfortably from one side of the campus to the other.
