    سلام دوستان امیدوارم حالتون خوب باشه

    این جمله رو نگاه کنید:
    در دوران ایلخانان به بازسازی می پردازد و به روزگار تیمور، مناره های سر انسان برخود می بیند.

    جمله در وصف اصفهانه.

    من قسمت دومش رو متوجه نشدم. میشه لطفا معنی‌اش رو برام شرح بدید؟ منظورش از مناره، به احتمال زیاد مناره‌ی "منارجنبان"ـه ولی واژه‌ی "سر" رو چه جوری باید خونده بشه؟ به نظرم ممکنه به معنی "سِرّ – secret" باشه چون اگه داستان "منارجنبان" رو بخونید می‌بینید که این بنا پر از راز و رمزه.

    ممنون می‌شم اگه جمله رو با حروف لاتین و همراه ترجمه‌ی انگلیسی برام بنویسید.

    گفته شده که وقتی تیمور به اصفهان حمله کرد، با سرهای قطع شده مردم مناره ساخت. این جمله هم احتمالا به این موضوع اشاره داره

    The city has been personified, imagined to be a human. According to the author, Esphahan sets out to renovate itself during the reign of the Ilkhanian, while, under Teimour, finds itself displaying minarets made of human sculls, emblematic of the massacre of the townspeople, and, according to some historians, no exaggeration at all.

    Is it " e xud" (at its side)?

    No Quresh jaan, it is "barxod". As for its meaning, you can read it in post #3 by "colognial":

    Or perhaps, alternatively, we can translate it in this manner as well:

    "......., it (Isfahan) assumed the look of a city with minarets made of human sculls."

    No, Qureshpor, not quite, though your suggested meaning is more or less what the author has aimed to say.

    The phrase should be read "bar xud", a more literary way of saying "be xud". 'be xud didan (sth)' is an idiom verb, meaning 'to find oneself (sth)", 'to experience (sth)'; it can also mean 'to measure oneself in a certain way', finding that one is perhaps capable or deserving of something'.


    Tanash taa aan vaght aaftaab o mahtaab be khod nadide bood. (Her body had up to that point experienced neither the sun nor the moon's light.) Note: As you probably well know, "aaftaab o mahtaab" is an instance of exaggeration, a coined phrase that is used to show the extent of modesty in a young lady.

    Be khodash nemibinad ke dastmozde bishtar bekhaahad. (She can't see herself demanding higher wages.)
