مناره ساربان


This minaret belongs to 6th century and Seljuk Period that is decorated with brick and tile work. This minaret has about 54 meters high and can be observed from the mountains around the city very well.

This minaret was built in three floors and without basement, which is composed of seven sections. This minaret with relief Chinese brick, carved bricks and also Faience mosaic with the Kufic Reyhan style is decorated. The three existing inscriptions in the minaret has been written in Kufic.

This minaret due to asymmetries in its basis has been deviated about 8 degrees toward southeast from a long vertical. There is no exact build date for this minaret but because of too much similarity to Masjid Ali minaret (Ali mosque minaret) and also its architecture and the way of writing inscriptions its build date is between 525 to 550 A.H.
