Menar Jonban

Menar Jonban (Persian: "The Swinging Minaret") is a mausoleum in Isfahan, Iran, entitled to Amu Abdoullah Ebne Mohammad Ebne Mahmmoud, a mystic who died in 1316 AD.

The building includes two minarets; they are 17 meters high from the ground level, with a distance between them of about 10 meters. When one of the minarets starts shaking, the other one starts shaking simultaneously, therefore the vibration can be felt in the whole structure.

The mausoleum was built in 1316, while the minarets were added later by architect Baha' al-Din al-'Amili (also known as Shaykh Bahai).
