Ismail Fakirullah Tomb and its Light Refraction Mechanism

The Ismail Fakirullah Tomb is a structure in the Sufi tradition which yearly on March 21 (at Nowruz) is illuminated by the sun. The sun beams are captured by a prism on top of the tower, which then refracts it and shines on the tomb for 6 minutes. The building dates from the 18th century.
