The Kalon Minaret was built by Arlsan Kahn in 1127. Arslan Kahn is believed to have killed an iman during an argument. That night, the imam is said to have appeared to him in a dream and said: "You have killed me, now oblige me by laying my head on a spot where nobody can tread." Thus the minaret was built over his grave.
