Sarban Minaret

Most people visiting Isfahan focus on 400 years’ heritage site of Naghshe jahan square and other Safavi era monuments, some of them visit Jame mosque a Saljuk period magnificent mosque but dokhtaran and Masjid(mosque) Ali minarets are standing for about 900 years, this part of the city has been the habitat of Jews. Sarban minaret has about 48 meters height and is 900 years old. Minaret acts as a sign to show the city direction to the Caravans(Traveling groups), ( minaret = the place of fire) . the minaret has 7 parts. it,has been made by brick and a small part is covered by tiles. Simple but beautiful brick works on the body of minaret made it more attractive. Although I have never heard any problems with the visitors but as the minaret is located in the old part of the city inside the old quarters which are themselves interesting especially for western tourists I advise the visitors to be in small groups but not alone.

Ali Mosque Minaret Isfahan

This mosque, next to the Bazar-e Bozorg, has one distinguishing feature: it has an enormous brick minaret that looms over the adjacent square. It may not sport the extravagant tiles of neighboring minarets, but on closer inspection the brickwork is very fine with elaborate patterns traced into the surface. If nothing else, it makes an excellent landmark while trying to navigate the bazaar, especially as it glows like a beacon at sunset.

The surrounding area is full of aged houses with wooden balconies, through which there is an alternative route back to Naqsh-e Jahan (Imam) Sq. from the Jameh Mosque.

Shahi Assar Khaneh Museum

Dating from the Safavid era, this museum showcases the early technology involved in pressing oil from roasted seeds. A large round stone revolved on a circular stone plinth to grind the seed and the resultant oils were collected in storage jars. Castor, sesame, poppy and sunflower were ground down by the millstone housed in the lower basement (or pillar room) of this building and the oil was used in food preparation, soap production and in oil lamps. Ox or camels were used to pull the rigging.
