Monar Jonban

Name : Monar Jonban
City : Isfahan
Category : Famous places
Interest :



Monar Jonban or the shifting minarets, is a special attraction. The building looks like kind of square tomb with two minarets on top. Every half hour someone shakes a minaret in order to move another. To prove this feat, a bell rings when the two minarets move. This effect is due to the way the building was built.

So if you've visited the best points of interest such as Isfahan Naqsh-e Jahan Square, the Khaju bridges and Si-o-Se Pol, the Vank church, and you still have time. You can visit these Moner Jonban that are a real attraction for the Iranians. Every half hour someone shaking minarets. A few years back, you could also try to get into minarets and move but for reasons of security and preservation of the site is no longer possible.
