It's one of the smaller mosques, but entering this pretty piece of art makes you gaze up towards the marvellous dome and elaborately decorated walls. Take your time to swallow the beauty!

The ceiling of this mosque is the cover photo of LP Iran, but when you actually standing inside it, it’s even more beautiful than the cover photo. There are at least 2 more mosques nearby it, but this one is definitely my favorite. Recommend!

It's only a single domed prayer room but so beautifully decorated and so well proportioned that it's like you are entering in heaven.

A simple, large dome leaves quite an impact. Once you enter it is quite magical, the tiles and arches, high dome and sense of space are beautiful. Certainly not "average" as another reviewer said. The architecture is amazing. Very impressed.

The mosque and its dome especially are a pure masterpiece. The very first moment you step in the architecture, decoration and art combined catch your breath. A must-see in Esfahan. Depending on the time of the day the ceiling would be coloured differently - keep...More

this mosque is more than a mosque just for praying... in Safavid time it was royal family`s mosque, so there are some differences. for example, it doesnt have minarets and there are major architecture diversities in comparison to Shah Mosque. so dont forget to visit...More
