It is rare that I mark something as remarkable as these minarets as average, but I can't say that I was that impressed. Yes, the second minaret does shake when the other is pushed by the man inside it, but does not move a great deal. Our guide told us that both minarets are constructed of wood with a thin veneer of tile to make it look as if they are solid. They are connected by a wooden beam so that when one is shaken the other does too. I recall that they are only shaken at certain time of the day.

The most important thing you should know is that there is a timing for moving the minarets. So, try to be there on the time pre-announced so you can watch them moving. You can call them for knowing the time table.

Monare Jonban is a monument located in Isfahan, in central Iran. Construction began in the 14th century Safavid or Ilkhanate dynasties of Iran to cover the grave of Sufi Amu Abdollah Soqla. Its notable feature is that if one of the minarets is shaken, the other minaret will shake as well.

The first question wandering in your mind after visiting Monar Jonban is how possible this unique architecture work for centures.
Don't forget the minarates will be shaked at certain times of the day. And you are not allowed to get into them anymore. Just from the yard you can see the guy shaking them. Breathtaking

Must inform their staff to shake for you as someone will go up there to shake for you. Just enjoy the view before shaking start.

upon shaking one minaret (someone climbs inside and shakes the walls)--it actually shakes, the other minaret gets the vibration and moves too. the movement not visible but bells on the minaret ring.

The so-called "shaking minarets" are attached to a small shrine built in the Mongol era (the Il-khanates) and, in that respect, of interest as you will see few standing during your visit. The little minarets were added later in the Sefevid era, and if one is rocked the other does too, attested by a little bell - demonstrated every hour or so.

Isfahan is always a good idea. Very nice and very tricky building. They move it every 90 minutes. Find out the time!
