The Minaret of Jam is located in Afghanistan’s Shahrak district on the banks of Hari river at a place where it meets river Jam around 215 km east of Herat. The minaret was built in 1194 by the great Ghurid Sultan Ghiyas ud-Din, and its location probably marks the site of the ancient city of Firuzkuh, where the summer residence of the Ghurid emperors were located.
