  • Such a wonderful palace! Today, Ali Qapu palace is under renovation. Its terrace has a great view to the square. Be patient and climb up to the sixth floor where you can see beautiful niches on the walls. Don't miss it! (The entry price for foreign tourists is 200,000 IRR)
  • interesting historical places of Naghsh-e Jahan . I strongly suggest every one to visit this nice palace.
  • Worth the climb for the music room alone, a true beauty ! For the rest, some nice paintings remain...

  • This palace has the interesting balcony, which makes it unique.
