Full description

In this tour, we will be visiting one of the pigeon towers in Isfahan. Maybe it sounds odd for a city like Isfahan to have towers for pigeons. See More…
In a district named Mardavij there is a pigeon tower where pigeons could fly comfortably inside the tower, their guano was collected in the tower and then used for farmlands that used to be located around Borj-e Mardavij. Then we will continue the tour in the Armenian neighborhood of Isfahan. And we will touch on the life and interactions between Armenian Christians and Muslims. After visiting the music museum of Isfahan where we can see a collection of traditional authentic Iranian musical instruments with live performance we move on to our next site which will be the Vank Cathedral. Iranian architecture mixed with Armenian architecture will be the first thing that catches your eye in Vank Cathedral. Iranian architecture in the Armenian Church… a dome with indigenous materials like clay, mud and brick. Before entering the church there is Khaje Khachator statue who was the first to bring printing press in Iran. First printed book in the Middle East was published with the help of this device. Glorious paintings inside the chapel, the April 24th memorial monumental sculpture, the smallest scripture in the world and written words on a piece of hair are the things that will surely draw your attention. After visiting the church and walking along Jolfa Street we reach a bridge named Sio-se-pol which is the longest historical bridge in Isfahan. this bridge was instructed in the name of shah Abbas (the first) to connect the southern part of Chahar Bagh to its eastern part. Walking along Si-o-Seh Pol Bridge is a life time experience you will never forget about. The last bridge to be built in Isfahan, safavid era, was Pol-e Joubi. In Isfahani dialect it is pronounced “Choubi”. The bridge was exclusively constructed for the use of the king and his courtiers; they had access to the Haft Dast Palaces (seven handed palaces) through the bridge. Walking along Joubi Bridge will be a pleasant experience. At the end we will make a visit to the most beautiful historical bridge in Isfahan named Khajou Bridge and we will be visiting the mausoleum of Professor Arthur pope which is located near the bridge. Khajou Bridge is one of the most beautiful and the only tiled bridge in Isfahan which will be visited by our professional tour guide.
