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.

  • Amazing construction. Its notable feature is that if one of the minaret is shaken, the other minaret will shake as well  more »
  • There was also other tower to tower to 1 would shake. Looked like "tourist trap". Little spectacular.

  • Interesting to understand the construction technique used. It seemed more like a local curiosity.

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.
