Great Mosque of Samarra

The Great Mosque of Samarra was completed in 851 by the Abbasid caliph Al-Mutawakkil. It has been listed a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007. For a time, it has been the largest mosque in the world. The mosque itself was destroyed in 1278 after Hulagu Khan's invasion of Iraq. Only the outer wall and its minaret remain.
Its minaret, the Malwiya Tower, is a spiralling cone 52 metres high and 33 metres wide with a spiral ramp containing stairs to reach the top. Al-Minārat Al-Malwiyyah ("The Twisted Minaret ") was originally connected to the mosque by a bridge. The minaret or tower was constructed of sandstone, and is unique among other minarets because of its ascending spiral conical design. The height of the Malwiya made it practical to be used for the call to prayer. It is visible from a considerable distance in the area around Samarra and therefore may have been designed as a strong visual statement of the presence of Islam in the Tigris Valley. The minaret's unique spiral design is said by some to be derived from the architecture of the Mesopotamian ziggurats. In 2005 the top of the Malwiya minaret was damaged by a bomb. Iraqi police said insurgents blew up the top section of the 52-metre tower, which had previously been used by US soldiers as a lookout position, although US troops had pulled out of the site a month before.

Uzbekistan

Best of Uzbekistan 2019!⁣
Pt 3: Food & Culture 😍⁣

Uzbekistan had been on my bucket list since 2011/2, but it was SO worth the wait. I was blown away by the stunning architecture and intricate craftsmanship which met us at every turn, not to mention the fascinating history and delicious food (even their bread is a work of art!)... Mark my words, this will be a tourist hotspot in the future - so get in there now!⁣

Бухара / Buxoro

The small and iconic Chor Minor (4 minarets in Tajik) was a gatehouse to a now-destroyed madrasa. This is easily reached on foot through backstreets from the center of old town. It’s right in the middle of a local neighborhood and there’s barely any tourist visiting this monument(!) as you’ll see in the vid 👌🏾It felt kind of odd and refreshing to have it all to yourself. There’s also a souvenir shop right across it selling Soviet memorabilia and trinkets.

Minaret - Lednice

レドニツェ城の裏手にはムーア式の塔、Minaretがあります。高さ60m、約300段の階段を上るとそこは絶景です。が、高所恐怖症の僕は足がすくみました…笑

Khiva

Khiva Uzbekistan 2019
Khiva non l’avevo mai sentita nominare prima di questo viaggio, ma e’ stata una piacevole sorpresa.
Arricchita dalle immagini dei minareti e delle cupole color turchese Khiva e’ una citta’ museo. La citta’ vecchia che si trova all’interno delle mura, e’ stata oggetto nel tempo di un intelligente lavoro di conservazione che pur transformandola in un vero e proprio museo a cielo aperto non ne ha intaccato a mio parere la bellezza.
Passeggiare per le viuzze della citta’, ammirare le vecchie Madrase e i bei minareti e’ un piacere per la vista e lo spirito ed e’ probabilmente quanto di piu’ simile si possa trovare alle citta’ delle epoche passate.
In questa foto potete ammirare il kalta minor minaret, tozzo ed imponente minareto sezionato a tronco di cono e completamente ricoperto da Ceramiche nei Toni Del Verde e del Turchese. Avrebbe dovuto raggiungere i 90 metri ed essere il più alto del mondo ma, sopraggiunta la morte del suo committente la sua costruzione fu interrotta a soli 26 metri.

SEMNAN MİNARE

Selçuklu döneminde
Ebu Harb Bahtiyar tarafından 1026 yılında inşa ettirilen minare, İran'da bulunan Semnan Cuma Camisi'nin en eski tarihli bölümüdür.
💠 💠 💠
Minare tamamen tuğladan inşa edilmiş olup gövdesi, çeşitli geometrik motiflerle tezyin edilmiştir. Şerefe altında ise Turkuaz renkli sırlı tuğlalar kullanılmıştır. Köşk kuruluşlu şerefe kısmı, Kahramanmaraş Ulu Camisi'ni hatırlatmaktadır.

Koski Mehmed Paša Mosque

This is the view from the minaret of the Koski Mehmed Pasha Mosque, which is an extraordinary piece of Ottoman architecture. (It's the mosque you can see in my last post.)
.
The spiral staircase up the minaret is extremely narrow and if somebody is coming the opposite way to you, it becomes quite difficult to squeeze past them, which all added to the fun of this little adventure! .
Afterwards I learnt that this is one of the best viewpoints for the Stari Most bridge. Doesn't it just look like a fairytale? I love the pastel colours of the houses and the sparkling river, and being up on the tiny balcony of the minaret felt slightly precarious and exhilarating, like Rapunzel in her tower!
Definitely worth a visit while in Mostar. .
