Feeling the true meaning of Iranian art and architecture happens when walking through the great Naqsh-e Jahan Square (UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE) and Chehel Sotun. We begin our journey through Isfahan by visiting Chehel-Sotun Palace. This architectural masterpiece is a pavilion in the midst of a park at the far end of a long pool which is a typical design of all Persian Gardens. We continue our tour to Naqsh-e Jahan Square which is an oblong-shaped square built in the Safavid era. The square with its lively atmosphere has always been a perennial tourist attraction; from all sides, it shares a border with aesthetically remarkable monumental buildings linked by a series of two-storied arcades of shops. The monuments surrounding the square are named Shah Mosque, The Pavilion of Ali Qapu Palace, Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque and entrance to a vast bazaar. We visit Imam (Shah) Mosque situated on the south side of the Naqsh-e Jahan square. The mosque was built during Safavid period by the order of the first Shah Abbas. We take you to the cozy corner of Chah Haj Mirza tea house which is considered as a very famous tea house in Isfahan. And last but not least Isfahan Grand Bazaar.
