This unique stone tower is one of the great enigmas of architectural archaeology. Powerfully built and still very sturdy, experts still disagree as to its original function – A fortress? A fire temple? A beacon? And the legends surrounding the name are as entertainingly varied. Interesting audio-visual displays within examine these questions but the highlight of a visit is emerging at the top for a superb panorama of the old city and beyond.
