Monare Jonban - Shaking Minarates, Esfahan

1.0
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.

    The minarets are shacked at 10:30 A.M and 1:30 P.M. Shaking of the minarets is very amazing. The building is the first anti-earthquake in the world.  more »

    It is not a very special place in artistic architecture, but there is a very clever engineering trick which makes it very unique.  more »

Where to stay in Esfahan

Esfahan includes a smattering of accommodations that provide variety, if not depth of choice. Along the main Chahar Bagh drag and the streets that lead off it, you'll find a few fairly basic hotels, providing decent rooms in the city center, close to the main attractions and services. Hostels can be found, with dormitory rooms providing particularly good options for budget-conscious travelers who want to be right in the thick of things close to the main square and the bazaar. The most luxurious hotels in town lie further to the south, set in historic buildings overlooking the river.
