Imam Mosque, Esfahan

Imam Khomeini Mosque – Completed in 1629 during the reign of Shah Abbas the Great, this is one of the most monumental mosques in the world. A pity massive tent and scaffolding has been put up over its entire courtyard for ceremonies relating to the death anniversary of Ayatollah Khomeini, obscuring the magnificent inner gateway facades.
