Full description

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 (Jameh Mosque). See More…
They were placed in four corners of The Square as the four main pillars of Safavid reign. 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. After visiting Jameh Abbasi Mosque, we will walk toward Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque. A mosque named after the greatest Shia figure, Sheikh Lotfollah. This mosque was built under orders of Shah Abbas. Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque was supposed to be built as a school for teaching and the meetings of Sheikh Lotfollah. The onstruction of it stopped with his death and only the dome of this school was fully constructedwhich is now referred to as the Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque. The mosque’s architect name is written on tile mosaics inside the Mihrab. It is one of the places you should not miss while visiting. After the Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque, through the archway Bazaar we move to a factory that belonged to Safavid-era. The oil extraction and distillation factory, called “Assarkhaneh-Shahi”, in which caravans would take oily and non-oily seeds (such as sesame and poppy) for extraction. After visiting the factory, walking through Bazaar is recommended. While walking through the Qeysarie Bazaar you can not only enjoy visiting segments of Bazaar like Timch-e, Chahar Sough and savory spice shops, but also buy special spices of Iran and souvenirs of Isfahan. The architectural style of Isfahan Bazaar is unique in its kind. At the end 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.
