In the sixth century AH, it was a brick and octagonal tower. During the reign of Reza Shah Pahlavi, another brick building was built instead. During this reconstruction, a turquoise colored tile tablet from the seventh century AH was found, which has an inscription in Kufic script and verses from the Quran, and is now kept in the Museum of Ancient Iran.

The construction of the new building was done in 1344 by the National Works Association and the Municipality of Hamedan at the time and by Engineer Mohsen Foroughi.

Babataher, better known as Babataher Eryan, is an Iranian mystic and poet of Persian descent and couplet belonging to the late fourth and mid-fifth centuries AH, which coincides with the 11th century AD in Iran, who lived during the reign of Tughral Beyk of Seljuk.

As for his name and title, you should know that Baba was a title given to pious followers at that time and he was naked because of his heartbreak of worldly material things.

If you want to know more about this famous Iranian poet, it should be said that accurate information is not available about Babataher’s family, education and life, but according to Ravandi in Raha al-Sadr, he met with Seljuk Tughral in 447 AH and very much He is respected.
Baba Taher in one of his famous couplets has included his year of birth in alphabetical letters, which has been obtained after calculation by Mirza Mehdi Khan Kokab, in the year 326 AH.

But in this regard, Rashid Yasemi, citing the same two bits and pointing to the importance of the number 1000 in most nations, believes that Babataher meant the word A in the year 1000 AD, and as a result of this inference, his year of birth is 390 and 391 (equal to 1000 AD) has been calculated. Finally, after 85 years of life, he died in Hamedan.
