Currently, Iran is the host of twenty-three UNESCO world heritage sites. Three out of five of these sites in Isfahan province are located in Isfahan city. In this tour we will be visiting these three sites which are among the most magnificent historical monuments of Isfahan.
At first we will be visiting Jameh Atigh Mosque as a collection of Iranian Islamic architecture. Jameh Atigh Mosque is one of the most magnificent corners placed in the historical context of Isfahan. In 2011, Jameh Atigh Mosque was inscribed on the world heritage list. Of its beauties Nizam al-Mulk dome, Taj al-Mulk dome, the al-Mihrab Oliyatou(the altar of Master Hydar) and the Beit Al-Sabat shabestan, which is apparently known as Linen tent.
For visiting the next site we will walk through the Bazaar and then to the circumference of Naqsh-e Jahan Square. We will reach Naghshe-e Jahan Square in 20 minutes through the Qeysarie Bazaar or Grand Bazaar of Isfahan. Naghshe-e Jahan Square known as an important historical site was an arena of government (Ali Qapu Palace), Economy (Qeysarie Bazaar), Religion (Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque) and People (Jame Abbasi Mosque). They were placed in four corners of The Square as the four main pillars of Safavid reign. Naghsh-e Jahan Square is one of the first sites to be inscribed on the world heritage list (1979).
Walking up the stairs of Ali Qapu palace (center of Safavid dynasty) and watching Naghsh-e Jahan Square from the palace balcony is a lifetime experience that will make any tourist fall in love with Isfahan. And you will never regret walking up 200 flights of stairs to reach the hall of music. It is certainly well worth visiting. There is also the experience of singing under the tallest double shell dome with 52 meters height that has a worldwide reputation.
In our next site we will be visiting Chehel Sotun Palace. This is the only remaining palace from the Safavid-era, with artworks on the wall They depict specific historical scenes such as king’s entertainment ceremonies and receptions. Chehel Sotun Palace as an example of a classical Persian garden was inscribed on the world heritage list in 2011.
