Monare Jonban - Shaking Minarates, Esfahan

1.1
A visit to Monare Jonban - Shaking Minarates allows you to marvel at a unique engineering accomplishment. Construction of this shrine started in the 14th century, but the brick minarets only appeared sometime between the 15th and 17th centuries. The ratio between the height and width of the towers and some clever engineering means that if one minaret is shaken, the other will shake in tandem. Visitors are not allowed to shake the minarets themselves in an aim to reduce the damage caused by the movement.

  • Monare Jonban is a former mosque and a mausoleum of AMU Abdollah Soqla-the portal should be at the beginning of the 14 century built

  • Interestingly, every 20 minutes, there will be professionals on the right side of the small tower and hard to shake, when the tower shaking, hang the Bell Bell also have a ringing. According to basic data: The feature of this building is that if one of the towers is shaken, the other tower shakes. But I don't think the other one is moving! But it must have one of the oldest seismic structures in the world.

  • Small building but interesting Need to visit in a group in order to get a person to climb up the tower to shake the tower. Small stall selling Iran souvenir and CD inside.  more »
