Wonderful!
Oct 2019
This tall tower is an architectural masterpiece, surrounded by a lush garden. It's open to the sky and as the sun's rays fall on its twenty-four vertical angles there's an interesting play of light and shade. Acoustically, sounds echo here, and in times gone by was used as a beacon for travellers on the silk route.
It's a remnant of the Seljuk empire (10th-11thC). The present keeper is an amazing guy full of stories and gives a wonderful account of the tower.

The tower it self is a very good example of persian architecture it has acoustics capability while it seems impossible for this type of building. Also the old man who look after the place is intelligent and aware of the tower history and architecture.
