  • Incredible monument, fascinating Arcitecture, beautiful decoration. Unfortunately restaurationworks are ongoing. Therefore the dome is hidden by huge scaffolding from inside. But the works completed so far are very nice decorations inside and outside. Great views to the surrounding mountains.
  • The third largest dome in the world. Unfortunately there is a construction site inside the dome for repairs right now. There are no good restaurant in Soltaniye city so eat your meals in larger cities around. Like Ghazvin or Zanjan.
  • A must go if you pass through the Zanjan province. Sultaniyeh was once the capital of the Ilkhanid Empire, and this dome was built during the reign of the Oljeitu Khan in the early fourteenth century.
  • Very intersting and beauiful place.
  • Immense dome in the citadel of Soltanieh, built in the XIII century by the order of the mongol ruler Mohammad Khoda Bandeh. The building has been beautifully restored after 70's and it is the 7th UNESCO Iranian heritage site.
