Pinawa Manitoba Canada Horizontal Dial 469
The Pinawa Heritage Sundial located in the center of town was constructed as a city wide effort to create pride and focus. The 17.5 foot high horizontal sundial has a gnomon constructed of steel and the 38.5 by 40.5 foot base is constructed of polished granite, rail, and granite stones. The sundial has two sets of time markers. An outer dial ring indicates local apparent time, while an inner dial ring indicates zonal solar time. Forming an integral part of the sundial, 12 icons were designed and constructed, illustrating the history of the region and its people.
