An amazing place to visit, with an imagination, it will take you back in time to a bygone age and the prices of Persia.
The Mosque looks pretty impressive in size and architecture from the outside but the fact that you can only observe it's interior from a roof of a nearby souvenir shop kinda brings the whole experience down a notch.

The people at the mosque where very welcoming. Me and my friends had someone show us around, we gave him a tip because he explained alot to us. The mosque is beautiful with all the historical features still intact after 1400 years of standing. Absolutly amazing :)
