Brick Minaret (Persian: مناره آجری‎) is a historical minaret in Khorramabad, Iran. This Minaret is close to the Falak-ol-Aflak Castle and was built to help caravans find their ways through dark nights. To facilitate this, a fire was lighted on top of the minaret, which was visible from long distances.[1] Brick Minaret is now located in the south of Khorramabad, and it is registered on the list of National Monuments.[2][3]
