The square sits between two large mosques, the historic bazaar, and a palace. Edged by these monumental architectural feats and containing a reflective fountain at its center, the square is an open public space that invites local and visiting families and groups of friends out into its expanse.

  • This place is awesome. Different sides of this square were built for different reasons, religion, science, politics and market. Before going to this vast square, read more about its structure to get familiar and be able to know the secrets. Do you know why the mosque is not built straight and there is a bend in its building?
  • A great sq that has two great Mosques and a palace in there. You have to go up and see the sq from Ali-ghapo. It looks amazing. God bless their architectures!
