Über dieses Bild:

Masjed-e Jame minaret and bazaar, Semnan, Semnan Province, Iran. Seljuk period, first half of 11th century. The Masjed-e Jame (Friday mosque) is in the heart of the bazaar - further evidence of the way in which, for people of the Silk Road, faith and commerce were frequently intertwined. Timur's son Sharukh built the mosque in 1425 but its minaret is much older. The decorative brickwork of this minaret continues the tradition of Damghan's Pir-I Alamdar tomb tower.
