I took this series of photos of the Jameh Mosque of Isfahan (Masjed-e Jāmé of Isfahan), while leading a small group of people in Iran in May 2022. Located not far from the very central Naghsh-e Jahan Square, it is one of the largest and most important monuments of Islamic architecture in Iran. It is also one of the oldest historical monuments in the city.
The Jameh Mosque of Isfahan, also known as the Friday Mosque of Isfahan, is the result of continuous construction, reconstruction, additions and renovations at this site from about 771 until the end of the 20th century. The monument used to be a Zoroastrian fire temple. Over the centuries, it was greatly expanded by various rulers. Each part of the mosque represents the architectural art of a particular era.
Jame Mosque of Isfahan is one of the must-see sights in Iran: UNESCO.
