Stunning Architectural Domes in Iran

You'll Gain A Whole New Appreciation Of Iran After This

Known as one of the world's oldest civilizations, Iran is home to a plethora of ancient artifacts and architectural wonders. To the casual eye they may not be immediately obvious. But hidden on domed ceilings and etched onto walls is a world of extraordinary splendor.
Instagram photographer @m1rasoulifard has traveled to some of the most celebrated and significant places of worship within Iran.
From the magnificent 900 year old jāmeh mosque to the kaleidoscopic Hazrate-Masomeh’s mosque in Qom and everywhere between.
Incredibly he was able to photograph inside each building - a privilege rarely afforded to anyone. Whether granted permission or simply stealthy with his smartphone nobody knows for sure. Either way his images provide a refreshing insight into an Iran few of us have ever seen.
Whilst the vibrant colours and complex details might have faded, their existence is a reminder of the true beauty of Iran's rich architectural history.
