I love it specially these days because of 2 reasons; 1. the river is dry so you can go to the historical bridge and spend time near its central pool. 2. cars and buses are not aloud to came to the square and it has very calm atmosphere with many lovely monuments:)

I was absolutely taken by the atmosphere in this square. It's wonderful, peaceful, just beautiful! You can have a look around the square and see two mosques and the Ali Qapu.

It is one of the Unesco's World Heritage Sites and the biggest square in Iran. It's surrounded by 3 stunning monuments (Ali Qapu, Imam and Sheikh Lotfolah Mosques). You can use coaches to visit all around the Naghshe-e-Jahan square. There is a long bazaar around it where you can buy many beautiful and precious handicrafts as souvenirs and also traditional sweet pastry of Esfahan that it is called GAZ.
