  • Although the mosque is still under reconstruction, is worth visiting. Around it is advertisement, which can pass through the square Naqshe Jahan Square. Prices on this bazaar are better than on the Bazaar around the square and not as a tourist.

  • One of the oldest mosque still standing in Iran. Very large and impressive. It has been built in several stage and designed so that the Imam would be heard at any corned of the mosque during the prayers.
  • You can't find a gem like this easily! It's a great mosque as well as a great museum of architecture! Just visit it in the silence of Heaven!
  • It's so Amazing.Has a Different Architecture from Others Mosque
  • Very big and also beautiful. To bad that a lot of it was under construction, but that’s understandable for these older buildings.
  • An incredibly beautiful mosque. With its bare brick wall some of the rooms seem almost etheric. Definitely worth visiting to see an old style mosque.

Where to stay in Esfahan

Esfahan includes a smattering of accommodations that provide variety, if not depth of choice. Along the main Chahar Bagh drag and the streets that lead off it, you'll find a few fairly basic hotels, providing decent rooms in the city center, close to the main attractions and services. Hostels can be found, with dormitory rooms providing particularly good options for budget-conscious travelers who want to be right in the thick of things close to the main square and the bazaar. The most luxurious hotels in town lie further to the south, set in historic buildings overlooking the river.
