It is said that the Ark was once the largest brick building in the Middle East, but Tabriz is a notoriously earthquake-prone city and successive tremors reduced this mighty structure to a miserable pile of rubble. All that remains today is one busted-up arch standing in the centre of Tabriz, and you will need to have a much better imagination than us before it will evoke any sense of lost grandeur. Maybe if some gardens were set around it, it might be shown to better effect, but the area is now used as a car park, which robs any last sense of dignity from the Ark. Come with low expectations.
