Description

The Peace Tower dominates Parliament Hill, rising over 90 meters (300 feet) into the sky above Ottawa. Dedicated to the men and women killed in World War I, the Peace Tower houses the Memorial Chamber; the Book of Remembrance at its center contains the names of the 66,650 Canadians killed in the Great War. Each day the book is turned to a different page. Other books around the chamber list the names of Canadians who lost their lives in other conflicts. At the heart of the Peace Tower is a 63-bell carillon. The largest bell weighs over 10,000 kilograms (ten tons), while the smallest is only four. Visitors to the Peace Tower can take a peak at the carillon as they take an elevator to the Tower's observation deck located just below the huge clock face.
