“Should be maintained, not attractive enough”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

It is a Legend, but not well maintained and thus less attractive. No guide or information about this. You can't see it is shaking as it has been prohibited. Can be avoided

“disappointed”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Cannt get near to the minarets and this is closed to public entry...next to the station and once can only view it from a distance; one might even miss it if the guide is not knowledgeable

“must see....”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Did not seem to be very popular place going by the number of people. Excellent and detailed Architecture. Should visit if you are in the city. Wished we could experience the shaking minarets...

“trembling towers”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

a engineering marvel : the towers resonate vibrations when one is shaken by hand !!
and to think there was no adhesive and no cement !!
sad that now a climb up is not allowed but still worth seeing and learing about the skills of the masterbuilders of yore

“Difficult to approach”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

The shaking minarets are beautiful, but difficult to approach. Slightly damaged in the earthquake, you are no longer allowed to test the "shaking" phenomenon (when you shake one, the other also shakes
