The tower, a monument from Seljuk period, was registered in Iran’s National Heritage List in 1931.
Some believe that the tower works as a clock; which means we can read the time using the shadows on the walls of the tower.
The other possible function of the tower is working as a leading light for the travelers of the historical Silk Road.
The tower’s height is 20 meters and its area is 48 square meters.
The exterior shape of the tower is a polygonal cylinder and the interior shape is a round cylinder.
The historical structure is made of brick and adobe.
It is believed that the tower was made as a monument for an influential figure, but there are disputes over the identity of the person buried in the historical site.
