Menar Jonban

Without doubt you have not seen another similar structure in your life! Menar Jonban or the "Shaking Minarets place" is located in the western zone of Isfahan in Atashgah Boulevard. Menar Jonban was built in 1316 AD during the Ilkhanian dynasty. The structure of Menar Jonban consists of two pillar shape parts, separated by 9 meters and each of them is 17 meters high and they are linked to the roof by a spiral staircase. It's interesting to know that the two minarets were not part of the building till the Safavid era.

Although the shaking minarets is still a mystery, the experts believes that these movements are due to the Doppler Effect.  As the minarets are identical in every way, the movement of one will cause the same effect on the other. Menar Jonban is also famous for its incredible blue tiles.
