The main center and start of most tourist tours around two million Esfahan is at the Square Naqsh-e Jahan („Image of the World Square“) also called Imams Square. With its dimension of 560×160 meters it is the largest in Iran. In addition, at its southern end is the largest monument in the city – Imam mosque. It has a strong atmosphere especially in the evening when the locals held picnics. Most bustle and hustle is here during Ramadan in the evening.

As soon as you enter the square Naqsh-e Jahan, you will be captivated by its vastness and eye-pleasing regularity. In the middle is a huge pool with fountains and in the middle of each side is one monumental building.
