  • Gonbad - e Qabus Tower is a heritage of humanity of Unsco since 2012 the tower only made of bricks higher worldwide with 72 metres in total. a magnificent, glorious and mysterious Tower. A huge decagonal building with a conical roof, which the cone is the most high and great in its way. Built in 1006 / 1007 by order of Amir Shams ol-Ma'āli Qabus ibn Wushmgir to make it his grave after his farewell from this world. According to history this tower has withstood two earthquakes of more than 6 degrees of Richter. What is striking is that on this site we can see an echo effect but horizontal, which the listener is only who shouts or talks. On this site there are many secrets to disclose but unfortunately we don't see enough studies on the tower. At the foot of the tower you can see and buy crafts of Turkmen villagers and try different types of bread, sweet and fresh cookies.

  • To capitals Gorgan in Golestan province, East 95 km, take each other, town in 1 hour and 15 minutes in taxi. From Central Asia to Turkey had various mausoleums, this tower is no longer beam big high and is worth a look. However, inside the no, almost no outside decoration. Just look at this tower, collected 200,000 real (about 720 yen) admission. More and more people are talking Turkey language word here is hardly noticed in Gorgan, unlike Azerbaijan or Turkey Republic of Turkey, speaking, like similar to Uzbek Central Asia, such as was. I thought it was more likely to face similar to our Japanese and quite an interesting city.
