The tag tower:type=minaret is added to a man_made=tower feature to specify that it is a Minaret: a tall, usually slender tower at a mosque with a balcony or a gallery from which the Muezzin can call the faithful to pray, or an audio system which broadcasts the call to prayer.

How to map

Set a node node at the center of the feature or draw an area area along its outline. Tag it with man_made=tower + tower:type=minaret
