  • 17th of the Safavid ruler Shah Abbas. This palace has been built in the century and is worth a visit. and the embroidery and decorations on the wall and the ceiling would probably be a spectacular sight, if not stolen or intact. It's still the ideal place to go on the roof and watch a very nice challenge and take pictures...

  • The Supreme Qapu Palace has a total of 6 floors, each with a different decor. The palace was built during the reign of Shah Abbas I, and all the miniatures used in it are the work of the famous Safavid artist Abbas Reza.
  • A very cool place with astonishing staircase. It looks great when you go to the balcony. A wonderful view of Naghshe Jahan Square. Seeing people walking, clip-clop of horses. Cool atmosphere. And the upper part, music room, is very beautiful.
