The Minaret of Jam is located in the Shahrak District, Ghor Province, by the Hari River. The 62-metre high minaret surrounded by mountains that reach up to 2400m, was built in the 1190s, entirely of baked-bricks. It is famous for its intricate brick, stucco and glazed tile decoration, which consists of alternating bands of kufic and naskhi calligraphy, geometric patterns, and verses from the Qur'an.nnFacebook : : : Ventuno Production :
