Situated in the centre of Bidar town, this old cylindrical tower is 22 m high. It commands a great view of the entire plateau and was once used as a watchtower. Today, it is an important historical monument and a clock tower. The word 'chaubara' means a building facing in four directions. It is believed that the tower was built in the pre-Islamic period and follows semi-Islamic architecture. The tower has a circular base, which is 180 ft in circumference and 16 ft high. Small arched enclosures have been built along its lower parts and there is a large clock on top of the tower. The top is accessed by a winding flight of 80 steps. Four rectangular openings make sure that the tower gets enough light and air.
