  • All you need is to have patience and visit the bazzar and visit the Naghshe Jahan Square at night it is marvalous.  more »
  • It is the second largest square in the world! surpassed only by Beijing's Tien ammen Square. The square has not changed much since it was built in about 1600, a modern touch, given by the fountains desired by the Pahlavi royal family, and by souvenir shops. Best time to visit it and it's late afternoon.
