If the major sights in Esfahan are Immam mosque and square Naqsh-e Jahan, then Square Sabzeh and adjacent mosque Jameh are its less ostentatious variation. Even so, they are also worth a visit, together with the nearby big bazaar.

Square Sabzeh

Navigate on the map

Sabzeh Square is located at the intersection of four busy boulevards. Fortunately, all of them disappear shortly before the square below ground, so there is absolute peace on the square itself. With its dimensions of 250×70 meters it belongs among very large squares. There are a plenty of fountains and the whole square is surrounded by a bazaar.

Ali minaret

Just behind the southern end of the square towers giant Ali minaret, looking from afar like a little smokestack. Absolutely on the horizon are visible jagged peaks of massif Sofeh.

Like elsewhere in Iran, behind the mosque is a very quiet area without nearly a living soul. Yellow bricks on the back of the mosque countradict the front inlaid with blue tiles.
