Photographer's Note

The Shah Mosque or Masjed-e Shah, recently known as Imam Mosque is a mosque in Isfahan, Iran standing in south side of Naghsh-i Jahan Square.
Built during the Safavid period, it is an excellent example of Islamic architecture of Iran, and regarded as one of the masterpieces of Persian Architecture. It is registered, along with the Naghsh-i Jahan Square, as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its construction began in 1611, and its splendor is mainly due to the beauty of its seven-colour mosaic tiles and calligraphic inscriptions.Wikipedia®
