  • Huge mosque, which can accommodate the many tourists. The place is incredibly charming, and especially under the mosque it was superbly created with tyndtslebne marble slabs as Windows that gave a beautiful golden light. We arrived without a guide, but was generously offer to be followed with another group of Iranian guide-free. It was clearly a good idea, without her experience had not been as good.

  • Definitely my favorite mosque (not only in Isfahan) for the grandeur, the brightness, the refinement of the decoration, the harmonious variety of architectural styles. As a fairly Lonely says a summary of the history of Islamic architecture that (I add) is worth more than many textbooks.

  • This mosque keeps a history of 1000 years so, it is very important and ancient Mosque. Lot of Shiite Muslims around the world comes here to visit it because there is a tomb of Top Shiite Cleric of his era, Allama Majlisi in it. You can see the evolution of Iranian architecture by walking through its different halls. In roofed places, if you look at the dome ceilings you'll see beautiful tile decorations with special styles that each of them is different from the others. It's a big mosque indeed. It is located next to the grand bazaar.
  • 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
  • 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.
