  • A breathtaking work of Islamic architecture. I can’t get enough of this tile work, it’s precious and unique. The patterns in blue are mesmerizing, simply sublime; you can spend hours looking at them in awe, discovering new things each single time you look. At sunset the light is perfect. Don’t miss this jewel. It's not only a national treasure for Iran but a true treasure for all of humanity.
  • Magnificent and mesmerizing with beautiful architecture and wonderful wonderful tiles in beautiful blue colors . The arks have a wonderful symmetry and a designs and the morpho graphic patterns makes you look at them for a long time .
  • Tired of carrying so much hard earned currency and sick of the absolute Democracy in your country? Well you've come to the right place. Since Iran is a totalitarian theocracy and Jame Mosque is the right place to get ripped off. You could buy factory made handicrafts for unreasonable prices and even book a lame tour that has your foreign name on it with a fluctuating price. You could also book plane tickets and stuff which they'd charge you about a minimum of 35 euros for it by removing the tickets' prices and offering you a friendly fake smile. If you're a woman and like to get sexually harassed or groped, we've got hoodlum bikers who'd love to offer you the favor when you're walking the back alleys there.
  • Its very good . I love it im going here her friday fot visiting and it Decreases my stress. 😊
  • Old monument with its islamic architecture and tall towers. Most of ceilings are nice with caligraphy arys
