HISTORIC MINARETS

          History of Isfahan has faced with several ups and downs, destructive wars and fragile short periods of peace. Security of the city was severely damaged or vanished, and people’s lives in danger. All people wished to live in peace and prosperity, but most of the time; they were oppressed and suffered by invaders such as Mongols, by selfish rulers. Either they were killed by invaders or were forced to follow destructive decisions and commands of rulers.

          The majority of Isfahan’s people lived under painful pressure of so called rulers. They were worried about their lives, relatives and properties. They had to defend themselves through various possible methods and procedures.

          They had to look out all the time. One of defensive possibilities was to look out attacks of enemies. Observation of hostile mobilities were very vital for them. Towns were protected by strong high walls and towers. Construction of very high minarets helped them to look out and observe hostile mobility. We would like to introduce you some of these minarets.
