Huge square. Beautiful at night. Surrounded by mosques all worth visiting. Bazaar and shops encircle so expect to be diverted. Allow 4 hours minimum to visit everything with shopping time on top.

A beautiful square to take a leisurely walk around the attractions or just sit on the grass and watch Iranians enjoying themselves. Be prepared to be approached by friendly Iranians wanting to practice their English and take your photo. The Mosques and palace are stunning and the view from the top floor of the palace is worth the climb. The bazaar is great to wander through. Lovely eateries and tea places. Beautiful lit up at night

We are a couple from Australia who recently spent two fabulous days visiting Isfahan with a fantastic guide. Isfahan is an incredibly beautiful and well preserved city with the Nashe Jahan Square being one of the significant highlights. There are so many things to see and learn about Isfahan (truly it is “half the world” as they say) and we were very lucky that we had an amazing guide Mojtaba to show us everything. He has a travel company We Go Persia that do tours all over Iran as well as some really interesting sounding ones that include Georgia,Azerbaijan, Turkey and Armenia. He knows Isfahan inside out and took us to see all the highlights but also some places off the beaten track and some great places to eat. He is extremely friendly and helpful and gave us some great tips for first-time travellers to Iran. We would highly recommend Mojtaba and his company wegopersia.com

If you are visiting Isfahan for the very first time and has only a few hours, "Naqshe Jahan Square" is absolutely unmissable! Also known as "Meidan Emam", as "Shah Square" or, more recently, as "Iman Square", it was built, between 1598 and 1629, by Shah Abbas I when bringing the Safavid Dynasty's capital from Qazvin to Isfahan. On its over 90.000m², lawns, gardens, flowers, ponds and dozens of horse drawn chariots ... plus hundreds of Isfahani families and school children enjoying its peaceful atmosphere. "Naqshe Jahan Square" is limited by some of the most important monuments remaining from the Safavid era: at its Southern end, "Shah Mosque"; "Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque" is on the Eastern side; magnificent "Ali Qapu Palace" stands on the West court and further North, "Qeysarieh Gate" leads to the unique "Bazaar of Isfahan". One last and important remark: since 1979, "Naqshe Jahan Square" has been appointed by Unesco as a World Heritage Site! Don't you ever dare to miss it! Enjoy!
