Which country is home to the world's largest hourglass?
Built in 1991, the 17-foot-tall hourglass sits within one of the glass pyramids that make up the Nima Sand Museum. Not only will the enormous hourglass tell you the time, it will also sing to you. The Nima hourglass is filled with more than 629 billion grains of sand, weighing over a ton, and it takes exactly one year for the upper globe to empty into the lower one. It’s turned over on New Year’s Eve each year at precisely midnight.
