Sөyembikә of Burlingame

We found another ancient structure that helps to explain why exactly the original Tatar settlers in California chose Burlingame to establish roots and begin a new life. We are witness to a foundation of arabesque brick arches, a tribute to distant Bolgar on the Volga. She is topped by Spasskaya as the cummerbund and decorated with a constructivist oil-rig sculpture, hinting at the riches hidden under the soils of Tatarstan.

After we snapped this pic, we were shocked to see that this tower has the identical tilt of the Soyembike Tower in Kazan. (at 194 cm (76 in))
