Ali Qabu Building

In the past, Ali Qapu Palace was the main entrance to other important palaces in Isfahan. Originally, Shah Abbas I Safavid built this palace in Isfahan to show the power and glory of his rule.

By God, Shah Abbas did well. What is interesting about Ali Qapu’s architecture are the columns of the palace, all of which are made of wood. This palace and its beautiful entrance is one of the best places to visit in Isfahan for photography.

Si-O-Se-pol (Thirty-Three-Bridges)

Si-O-Se-pol (thirty-three bridges) is another historical place in Isfahan, which was built during the reign of Shah Abbas 1st. Safavid. It is interesting to know that this bridge is the product of the art of the son of Mohammad Reza Isfahani, the creative architect of Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque. In the past, this long bridge hosted various ceremonies in Iran.

Some also say that the name of this bridge comes from Anahita, the goddess of water. One of the most beautiful sights in Isfahan is Si-O-Se-pol (Thirty-Three Bridges) at night, which has amazing lighting.

Another opinion is that because this bridge is very long and consists of a large number of openings for the passage of water, it is called Si-O-Se-pol (thirty-three bridges).

Next to these openings, there are nice cafes and restaurants where you can eat, drink and have fun.

Wank Church is the largest and most famous church in Iran and is also the Armenian cathedral of Isfahan. This church is also known as “Amnaperkich” and is one of the 13 remaining churches in the Jolfa neighborhood of Isfahan from the 17th century. “Vank” means “monastery” in Armenian. With the passage of time, in addition to maintaining its religious status among the people of Isfahan, especially the Armenians living in the Jolfa neighborhood, Vank Church has also turned into an administrative place and a center for social events. During the following years, the first printing press in Iran and the Middle East was established in the courtyard of this church.
