I think there are at least 20 Seljuk minarets in Isfahan, these are some of them:
 
Ali Minaret: (50 meters high)
 
 

Sareban Minaret in Isfahan: (54 meters high)

Thank you for the nice pics. Personally I find them interesting because I have not seen many examples of Seljuk architecture. Where is Isfahan? Did it have an ancient/medieval name?

Isfahan (Old Persian Aspadana, Middle Persian Spahan) is a city in central Iran, it was the capital of Seljuk Empire.
