  • second largest place in the world after that of Tien An Men. you really have to visit the different buildings on the coast. the atmosphere is incredible both in the morning at the opening and in the evening, the square is illuminated

  • Good location Time to shoot out like everything stops. There is a noise-on-the-ear for rent, but not quite worth it.

  • I was here for just a few hours but I could've been days witnessing all the details inside and outside this beautiful mosque. Take your time and enjoy.
  • it takes years to see all the beauties in Isfahan, one of the things that i like the most is the roof of the old houses in Iran. here is the roof of the entrance in Shah mosque, known as Imam mosque, build in 1629. i hope u the same as me enjoy this integration of art and architecture.
