Monare Jonban - Shaking Minarates, Esfahan
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
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.
