Talking about minarets in Isfahan, there are some minarets taller and at least 500 years older than minarets of Shah Mosque, such as:

Ali Minaret:





Sareban Minaret:

^^ Nice ones, but remember to post some info and a source when you show that nice pictures. I will make an index in the starting thread and will double check all info before I add it. (Then please discuss the sources with me through PMs if there's something unclear, but I will put up more info when I start off)


Ali Minaret - Iran - 48 m (157.48 ft)
C. 1118-1157

It was just a reply to the previous post, I had posted some info and a source in my first post in this thread about Gonbad-e Qabus: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpost.php?p=73911073&postcount=20

There are also some other minarets from the same period (early 12th century) and almost the same height (48 m) around the city of Isfahan.

Ziar Minaret:

When it comes to old tall buildings, Shibam (Yemen) and its Manhattan-like scape is almost a cliche.





Oldest buildings there date back to the 16th c. Some of them are more than 15 stories and 40 metres tall, which is pretty impressive for old mud buildings.
