Chehel Sotun Palace, Esfahan

The frescoes of this Esfahan palace - yet another world class artistic jewel...

Not all the frescoes have survived the 1979 Islamic Revolution...

Mausoleum of Harun Vilayet (Bogh-e Harun Vilayet)

Another artistic gem in Esfahan.

Islam is generally against the portrayal of human and animal images but there seems to be a lot of exceptions in Shia Islam. Here you find not only the Prophet (with his face blanked out) as well as the Shia imams.
