Monare Jonban - Shaking Minarates, Esfahan

#24 of 26 in Sightseeing in Esfahan
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • The anticipation is only followed by an anticlimax which still seems to attract ticket buyers. Waste of time.  more »
  • Although we been here when we were there and certainly also could laugh at afterwards, the ridiculously little for. Our guide proposed and movie ... This you don't have to see twice. A man goes into a relatively small minaret and by moves back and forth to move the minaret. That's all. If the well was free, but you have to pay 5 euros per person.

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.
