Top Things to Do in Esfahan, Iran

Once the seat of civilization.

Iran has many centuries old mosques that provide a visitor with a glimpse of the country’s storied past. In Esfahan, one of the places to visit is the Jameh Mosque, a UNESCO Heritage-listed site. The latter is a fine example of the different influences of Islamic art that cover various epochs some of which include the Seljuks and Safavids. Exploring the complex is like reading a history book because of the changing designs and the various states of repair and disrepair of the ceilings and halls you enter. You’ll see a mix of brown and blue colors, elaborate tile work, and paintings on the ceiling of each structure.
