(85+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
Rekindle your spirituality at the gate of Royal Mosque (Masjid-i-Shah), part of a World Heritage Site. Finished in 1629, the complex features four iwans and arcades, with the tallest one being 33 m (108 ft) high in front of the structure's largest dome. The predominantly dark-blue art of mosaic slowly turns into yellow and green as you go deeper into the mosque; along the way you can see the Thuluth script calligraphy alongside traditional Iranian ornaments on the intricate mosaics of over 475,000 tiles. The complex features Islamic era architecture of Iran. Plan to see Royal Mosque (Masjid-i-Shah) and other attractions that appeal to you using our Esfahan itinerary maker.
