  1. The place I adore! I love the whole Jameh Mosque. There is a great symphony of dancing simple bricks.
    Is there a gallery of the Jameh Mosque of Isfehan here in this site?

    • Thank you for your kind words.. as for the gallery of images for the Jameh Mosque, please wait for a few days since we are already working on it. :)

  2. Can someone please explain why the floor of the Mihrab has a cutout? Is this floor nook used for kneeling? I’ve noticed very few mihrab have this cutout in the floor.
