Description

A photograph of the Saraban or camel driver’s minaret (confused by Baly with the Chihil Dukhtar minaret). This minar stands very close to the minaret of the forty daughters in Isfahan. The minaret was built in 1130-55 and is almost twice as tall as its neighboring contemporary. It is made of tiers of tapering cylindrical shafts, with decorative bands of Kufic in turquoise tiles, and two girdles of elaborately ornamented cornices which can be seen in this picture.
