Welcome to Religion Answers. What would you like to know?

Minarets are distinctive architectural features of Islamic mosques - generally tall spires with onion-shaped or conical crowns, usually either free standing or taller than any associated support structure; the basic form includes a base, shaft, and gallery. Styles vary regionally and by period. They provide a visual focal point and are used for the call to prayer (adhan).
