Imam Square (Meidan Emam), Esfahan

(4.9/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Dating back to construction at the turn of the 17th century, Imam Square (Meidan Emam) represents a sprawling piazza that now holds World Heritage Site status. 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. Shop for souvenirs at the bazaar, whose stalls sell traditional pottery and other handicraft items. Put Imam Square (Meidan Emam) and other Esfahan attractions into our Esfahan vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
