A restoration project has recently been commenced on the staircase of the 17th-century Ali Qapu Palace, an element of the UNESCO-registered Imam Square in Isfahan province, the provincial tourism chief has announced.
UNESCO-tagged Jameh Mosque of Isfahan is a museum of architectural styles of different periods, Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts Minister Ezatollah Zarghami has said.
A masterpiece of Islamic architecture, Imam Mosque has entered its final stage of restoration, more than ten years since work began.
A selection of 200 “untold stories” about Isfahan is now available for you to re-discover the ancient city, which has long been nicknamed as “half the world”.
Despite Isfahan's widespread fame and its millenary historical sites, there are still parts of the city that are lesser-known to tourists.
On Thursday evening, when I was roaming through the gorgeous Imam Square of Isfahan, I suddenly bumped into the Danish ambassador to Iran, Jesper Vahr, and his family who were also touring the UNESCO-designated site.
