  • Needs much more attention. There is huge scaffolding under the dome and the main hall is not imaginable whilst the scaffolding blocks most of the architecture. It is not disabled friendly at all.
  • Great place to visit. The dome looks absolutely fantastic and the interior is just mesmerizing!
  • Soltanieh Dome is considered as the third biggest Brick dome in the world after Florence Cathedral Dome & Hagia Sophia Dome . it has remarkable brick work and plaster carving . It should be noted that Soltanieh Dome area had a beautiful grassland & gardens in 8 AH (Ilkhanate) but today it has altered to another places...
  • Well worth the visit. Would be good if they could continue the restaration work.
  • A Beautiful Historical site for Tourist.
