Shebeli Tower

Shebeli Tower

Shebeli Tower is a historical tower in Damavand, in Tehran Province of Iran.

Standing approximately 33 ft tall, the structure is a roofed octagon tomb of Sheikh Shebeli, a Sufi mystic. A sardāb (basement) also exists under the structure.

The structure is a remnant of the Samanid era, making it from the 12th century, at the latest, and is similar in design to extant structures in Bukhara.

The structure recently underwent some preservations.
