    Very amazing
    It is one of the best and most amazing places in Iran! You need one day to go around this square look at the beauties. Try not to forget to visit this place at night. During the night, it is one of the best locations for taking photos.

    Amazing UNESCO Square in Isfahan
    Once known as “Half of the World” among Iranians, this amazing (UNESCO) square (560 m long by 160 m wide) embraces the magnificent mosques of Imam and Sheikh Lotfollah, the splendid Aliqapu Palace, the Qeisarieh Gate and the traditional bazaar where you can find nearly all kinds of Persian handicrafts, as well as the two pairs of oldest-known polo stone goal posts. There are also lots of cafes and restaurants there. To visit all this beauty and buy souvenirs you need at least half a day to spend there. For taking photos, you can have a great view of the square from the roof of the bazaar and also nice shots at night when the lights reflect the image of the square in the pool. I also suggest tasting Isfahani Doogh and Goosh-e Fil or taking a horse-carriage ride around the square.

    A Nighttime Marvel in Isfahan
    Naqsh-e Jahan Square in Isfahan, also known as Imam Square, is a marvel of Persian architecture and a UNESCO World Heritage site. This grand square, surrounded by stunning Safavid-era buildings, offers an enchanting experience, especially at night. As the sun sets, the square transforms into a magical realm illuminated by soft lights, creating a serene and romantic ambiance. The centerpiece of the square is the magnificent Shah Mosque, with its intricate tile work and towering minarets. Nearby, the Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque, renowned for its exquisite dome and interior decoration, adds to the square's splendor. The Ali Qapu Palace, with its lofty terrace, offers a panoramic view of the square and the surrounding city. On the opposite side, the Qeysarie Gate marks the entrance to the Grand Bazaar, where visitors can explore a labyrinth of shops filled with traditional crafts, carpets, and spices. At night, the bazaar's vibrant energy continues as locals and tourists alike stroll through its bustling corridors. The square's vast open space is perfect for evening walks, with families and friends gathering to enjoy the cool breeze and the lively atmosphere. Street musicians often play traditional Persian music, adding to the square's charm. Naqsh-e Jahan Square is not just a historical site; it is a living, breathing part of Isfahan's cultural fabric, especially enchanting under the night sky.

This place is beyond expectation. Just walk around or take a carriage ride (2-3 $) to enjoy Ali Qapu (Shah Abbas strategic place to observe the City), Meydan-e Shah, Lotfollah Mosque (work of architecture Muhammad Reza), Masjid-e Shah (1637, with 52 m dome and 2 minarets, work of architecture Ali Akbar Isfahani)& the bazar which makes the connection between old and new town.

the best view of the square is the roof of Bazaar / access to this point is possible from Geysarieh cafe / you must to pay as ticket but a free option from the menu is include too ( coffees, teas , ice cream and ... ) / the best time is 30 min before the sunset, by this way you can see the square with natural light and lamps /
