Tughrul Tower, 12th Century Monument in Southern Tehran

Tugrul Tower, which was built in the 12th century CE, is located in the city of Rey, south of the Iranian capital.

The 20-metre tall brick tower is the tomb of Seljuk ruler Tuğrul Beg, who died in Rey in 1063. Originally, like other monuments of its time, it was capped by a conical dome, which would have added to its height. The dome collapsed during an earthquake.

Here are Tehran Picture Agency’s photos of the tower:
