condition. But if someone asks us to name the must-see historic monuments in
Isfahan, we will give him the list below:
Nagsh-e Jahan Square
: Do we really need to introduce the largest
historic plaza in the world? Naghsh-e Jahan literally means “the image of the
world”. You will understand why the moment you set foot on Isfahan’s epic-size
400 years old square.
B. Vank Cathedral:
Built by the Armenian refugees in 1606, Vank Cathedral is one
of the centers of Armenian religious administration in Iran. Vank is known for
the frescos and spectacular tilework used in its internal decoration.

Known as the “shaking minarets of Isfahan”, Menar Jonban is a
monument dating back to the 14th century. The minarets are the work of a math
genius! The anonymous architect of Menar Jonban has designed the swinging
minarets in a way that if you sway one of them, the other shakes as well!
D. Chehel Sotoun
is a palace in the middle of a huge garden built in the 17th
century. It is one of the masterpieces of Safavid era. The intricate glasswork

mosque in the hands of an arch philosopher? Well, it seems that Shah Abbas the
First wanted an answer to the question above when he appointed Sheikh Baha’i as
the architect of Sheikh Lotfollah mosque. Words elude me when I think of the
sublimity of Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque. It suffices to say that it is the perfect
example of the combination of Iranian artistry and religious zeal.
H. Khaju Bridge
is another historic bridge east of Si-o-se-pol. Khaju Bridge is
the most beautiful of all bridges in Isfahan due to its wonderful tilework and
design. The beauty of the bridge and the amazing view of Zayanderud was so

points of interest for foreign tourists. The pinnacle of Iranian artistry is
reflected in Isfahan’s historic monuments whose architecture has been used as
models for later generations. Isfahan has witnessed many ups and downs in its
long history. But the most glorious period in the history of Isfahan was the
long reign of the Safavid kings in the 16th and 17th centuries. Isfahan was the
capital of Iran from 1598 to 1736. The Safavids honored their capital by
creating some of the greatest monuments in the history of the world.
