Imam Mosque, also known as Shah Mosque, is located at the heart of the city of Isfahan, alongside of the Naqsh-e Jahan square. In 1931 Shah Mosque was registered as one of Iran’s National Monuments. And was also registered as a UNESCO World heritage site along with Naqsh-e-Jahan square.

Weather was nice when we visited Isfahan, and we saw many families having picnic at the square, which is the second largest public square after the Tiananmen Square in Beijing, China. One family invited us to have tea and cake with them even though we were complete strangers to them.

At the entrance of the mosque, we saw a man with a group of teenagers coming and asked if we speak English. He brought his students to the square, hoping to find tourists who could help his students practice English.

Everywhere we go, we see friendly people, beautiful architecture, diversified history and culture.
