Isfahan is a heavenly city of gardens, mosques and palaces for an open-minded architect. In addition to the artful dome constructions over the prayer halls of the larger mosques, the highpoint of Persian architecture is the multitude of garden complexes, staged as a mirror image of the cosmos or Paradise. With their aromatic shrubberies and trees the galleries of pillars are typical for these geometrically laid out Islamic gardens in which nature becomes a work of art. All good architecture seeks to create a world, and every genuine building is a unique specimen filled with atmosphere. Now is the time to see with new eyes, with an artistic view. From this standpoint, with its fascinating two hundred year building history, the architectural currents of Isfahan continue to have a lucid effect today.
