The Shaking Minaret (Manar Jonban)


It is a mausoleum, covering the grave of Abu Abdollah, and dates back to Safavid period. The minarets on both sides of the mausoleum Eivan and porch are the main attraction of this place. Because of the ratio between the height and width of the minarets, any movement produced in one of the minarets is automatically reflected not only in the other minaret, but even in the whole Eivan.

The Eivan of the mausoleum has been ornamented with four-pointed and polygonal azure tiles, and the inscription on the tombstone reads as follows:
This is the tomb of the virtuous, god-fearing Sheikh, “Abu Abdullah ibn Muhammad ibn Mahmud Saqla, my God bless his soul. Dated (17thZil-Hijja, 716 A.H.)
