The Minaret is beautiful from the outside but I found the entrance a bit expensive in comparison with other local sites which offer much more to see and do.

It is tall and well preserved, with interesting geometric designs in the brickwork. You cannot climb the tower either. There is a mural in relief around the base of the platform on which the complex stands; interestingly enough for an Islamic place, it shows human...More
