Monare Jonban - Shaking Minarates, Esfahan
(2.7/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our custom trip planner, Esfahan attractions like Monare Jonban - Shaking Minarates can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • 伊斯法罕的知名景點之一 建造時因為結構的問題, 導致塔樓的部分會有搖晃的問題 而且是外觀可見的搖晃程度 目前每天只剩下表演性質的定時搖晃 其他時間因為結構問題並沒有開放上去了

  • Interesting to look at the columns moving. But get here on one of the times they do it. Otherwise there isn't much around while you are waiting.
  • shaking takes place by the staff there almost every 1.5 hr, but don't get your hopes up, it doesn't move that much
  • Once they have rebuilt one of the columns trying to make it exactly the same way that it was and to their surprise it didn't shake anymore. WOW!
  • an interesting architecting
  • This building is the architectural masterpieces of Iran.
