  • 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.
