Choli Minaret (22 m high) is considered one of the most prestigious landmarks of Erbil city. It was erected one kilometer southwest of Erbil’s citadel. Built in 1128-1138 A.D. during the rule of Sultan Mudhaffar Al-Din, it is also called Al-Mudhafriah minaret. The local inhabitants refer to it as ‘Choli’ because it was far from the city.
