Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Shah Mosque is a part of the complex of Naqsh-e Jahan Square – the main attraction of Isfahan. This mosque is regarded as one of the masterpieces of Persian architecture in the Islamic era. Moreover it is registered as UNESCO World Heritage Site. Entrance ticket is 2 mln rial, about 4 eur. Try to come early to avoid big crowds as it is one of most popular attractions.

Shah mosque is located in the southern part of Naghshe Jahan square, and its majestic portal attracts anyone to go inside. This is the only mosque in Esfahan which has 3 double shell domes inlaid with blue tiles.
standing in the center of the southern dome, you will be amazed by the reflection of your voice.

On a trip to Isfahan, the first suggestion is to visit Naghsh Jahan Square. The Imam Mosque of Isfahan is one of the most significant buildings of the Safavid era, formerly known as the Shah Mosque, the New Soltani Mosque and the Jame Abbasid Mosque.
This magnificent mosque dates back to four hundred years ago.
Shah Abbas I built this spectacular mosque in the famous Naghsh Jahan (Imam) Square in Isfahan to be a symbol of the science and art of Iranian architecture in the world. A magnificent square to the south of which stands a large turquoise colored dome. In the seven-color tiles of Imam Mosque, blue color is superior to other colors, and the tiles have been used in designs, colors and patterns that give the mosque a heavenly and spiritual atmosphere.
Another important and of course interesting point is, a 3D perspective view of this mosque is also available on "Google Earth".

This is a little know remnant of the Masjid-e Jurjir, the only surviving C10th structure in Isfahan, and near one of the gateways of the Masjid-e Hakim . The façade fragment is the only remains of the mosque commissioned by the Buyid vizier Ibn Abbad, a Mutazilite scholar, and built by al-Sahib Kafil-kufat Ibn Abbad. The fragment consists of a deep entrance portal framed by side walls that project the façade away from the portal datum. Thin bricks are used to form geometric patterns in relief, and there is also engraved stucco work. It contrasts sharply with the styles of the later mosques.
