If you see Iran as a musical instrument, Isfahan is its song. If you see Iran as a head, Isfahan is its crown.
Isfahan is, undoubtedly, a jewel in the art of Iran: the city of kings, of blue domes and turquoise tiles, the city of green gardens, the city of art, industry, religion and architecture, …………. Isfahan is the city of music, color, water, trees and life. Isfahan is city of lovers.
Isfahan is both a hidden and open museum, as can be easily found in the Naqsh-e-Jahan Square, Imam Mosque, Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque, Ali Qapu Palace, Chehel Sotoun Palace, the bazaar, Jameh Mosque and the 33 Pol and Khaju bridges. It is a hidden city when you walk through its 900+ year old alleys which house abundant treasures: traditional extractors, religious schools, lesser-known tombs, gardens, aristocratic houses and painters expressing their craft away from the hustle and bustle of market corners; engravers and painters of old fabrics working away in the the silence of their small shops. All of them are Isfahan and Isfahan is still more than that. Isfahan does not come in words; Isfahan must be seen.
The Naqsh-e-Jahan complex was the first Iranian historical site to be registered as a UNESCO World Heritage site, followed afterwards by the Chehel Sotoun Palace and the Jameh Mosque.
The most important sites to be be visited in Isfahan include the 33 Pol and Khaju Bridges, Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque, Imam Mosque, Ali Qapu Palace, Hasht Behesht Palace, Qesareieh Bazaar, Vank Cathedrel and the Jolfa district.
