  • Sheikh Lotfallah Mosque is arguably the most fabulous mosque in Iran. Built between 1602 and 1619 during the reign of Shah Abbas the Great, the Sheikh Lotfallah Mosque is dedicated to the ruler's father-in-low, Sheikh Lotfollah, a revered lebanese scholar of Islam who was invited to Esfahan to oversee the king's mosque (now Imam Mosque) and theological school. The pale tones of the cupola change colour throughout the day from cream to pink (sunset is usually best) The mosque is unusual because it has neither a minaret nor a courtyard, and because steps lead up to entrance. This was probably because the mosque was never intended for public use, but rather served as the worship place for the women of the shah's harem
  • Ālī Qāpū ( Turko-Persian word for Imperial Gate ) is a grand palace in Isfahan , located on the western side of the Naqsh-e Jahan Square .and was originally designed as a vast portal. It is forty-eight meters high and there are seven floors, each accessible by a difficult spiral staircase. In the sixth floor music room, deep circular niches are found in the walls, having not only aesthetic value, but also acoustic. The name Ālī Qāpū, from Arabic Ālī, "Imperial or Great", and Turkic Qāpū meaning "gate", was given to this place as it was right at the entrance to the Safavid palaces which stretched from the Maidan Naqsh-i-Jahan to the Chahār Bā gh Boulevard . The building, another wonderful Safavid edifice, was built by decree of Shah Abbas the Great in the early seventeenth century. It was here that the great monarch used to entertain noble visitors, and foreign ambassadors. Shah Abbas, here for the first time celebrated the Nowruz (New Year's Day) of 1006 AH / 1597 C.E.
