Menar Jonban

Menar Jonban is a mausoleum built over the grave of Abu Abdollah and dates back to Safavid period. Minarets on both sides of the mausoleum and its porch are the main attractions 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 replicated by the other minaret.
