  • Certainly the most interesting building in Isfahan. Both impressive and lovely. You can see so many fine details. The great balcony provides superb views of the square. Climb 40 steps to visit Music Room. Very interesting decorations of the wall.
  • Beautiful masterpiece of art. I LOVE IT! And I recommend that you go and visit it if you happen to go to Isfahan. The tickets are pretty cheap for visitors.
