 Isfahan is one of the most famous cities in the world because of its ancient history as well as the abundance of antiquities. According to Andre Malrow, Isfahan is only comparable to the two cities of Beijing and Florence. Only Esfahan is one of the best surviving examples of different architectural styles. On the other side of Isfahan's monuments, we can see all kinds of domes, tiling, plastering, mahogany, carving and calligraphy in the best form in Iran. Staying in Isfahan in traditional accommodations, historical residence in Isfahan and so on is a good way to spend your time in this ancient city. Most of Isfahan's historical artifacts belong to the post-Islamic period, especially the two Seljuk and Safavid periods, with exquisite artifacts remaining in mosques, caravansaries, squares, and bridges and streets.

Isfahan is a beautiful and valuable city which is sister in law with cities like Freiburg in Germany, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, Yerevan in Armenia, Florence in Italy, Xi'an in China, St. Petersburg in Russia, Havana in Cuba, Yash in Romania, Kuwait City and Barcelona has a sister in Spain.

From the adversarial historical periods we pass, Tuqrol biek, who was the founder of the Seljuk dynasty, despite his hatred of the people, had a strong interest in Isfahan. For this reason, he made Isfahan his capital. The development and renovation of Tuqorl biek was continued under Alb Arslan's guidance. It was during the reign of Malek Shah that the green space in the heart of the city of Isfahan was architecture as the Garden of the World. 

Archaeological excavations indicate that this mosque was probably an important religious center of the city before the Arabs conquered it and used as one of the fire places in Isfahan. The discovery of a pillar foot, decorated with the Sassanian period, in the northern area of the mosque, there are evidence about the existence of a pre-Islamic building. There are some controversy about the history of the mosque's transformation, but it seems that the mosque was built in the early Hijra century and in the beginning of the Abbasi era, whose altar was demolished in the third century to be modified on Qibla.


Its various parts have been in existence for nearly a thousand years and have been undergoing repairs over the years, the last of which was the rebuilding of parts destroyed by the bombing of Iraqi aircraft during the eight-year Iran-Iraq war.


Isfahan Jameh Mosque is one of the mosques with many altar. Its most prominent altar is on the north side of its west porch, in a Shabestan built by Oljayto. This altar is an exquisite example of plaster decoration with flowers and beetles and geometric shapes. There are eight other sanctuaries in the mosque that were built gradually.
