Monare Jonban - Shaking Minarates, Esfahan

(1/5 based on 85+ 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.

  • The Minaret itself are very beautiful and nice designed the facility. However, had in luck, that we arrived just at the right time and had to wait. The minarets are all 1, 5 h moves. It's been exciting to see how the movement of the one, the other minaret resonate with leaves, for the price (200000 riyal) there but sehenswerteres.

  • Minarets of swinging. But the best from this attraction becomes. Spectacle quite wretched. Minarets are interesting by themselves and without rocking. And specially come here to see how their boat's controllability, not worth it.

  • A disappointing tourist attraction more than somewhere interesting, in my opinion not worth the hike from Esfahan. At fixed times a clerk enters the Minaret and the scroll to show the crowd gathered below as it moves by swinging ... Honestly with all the beautiful sights in Isfahan not worth the hike considering taxi and entrance. If you are in a group driven and will stop you have too many expectations.
