So the mosaic art of this mosque is different from the other mosques, the artists cut out the different shape of tiles piece by piece and made the altar's mosaic much more delicate. The ceiling is the most special part because of its harmonious understatement art. It is a great experience to lay down on the floor and look at the stunning ceiling.

This is where the name “Chehel Sotoun” has come from (Forty Columns). The walls are decorated with historical frescoes depicting kings’ battles. This place is a dream for photographers.
  • Siosepol (Thirty-Three-Span Bridge): This Bridge is built on the “Zayande Rud” around 400 years ago. The Persian art and skills of bridge building can be seen there.
