In this trip we see religious face of Isfahan where two main religions of Islam and Christianity meet. We visit one of the oldest mosques in Islamic world and the most important church in Isfahan, in Armenian Quarter of Jolfa. Here, the tolerance is displayed the best way possible.
Tour Itinerary :
We’ll start this one-day Isfahan tour visiting Vank Cathedral, a 17th century building constructed by the first Armenians who immigrated to Isfahan. The walls and the ceiling of the cathedral are beautifully decorated by frescos depicting biblical stories. We also visit an amazing museum inside the cathedral housing valuable objects such as smallest bible in the world.
Jame Mosque, also called Atigh Mosque, is the second place to visit. This mosque is a living Islamic heritage listed in UNESCO, exhibiting different arts and architectural traditions. Jame Mosque, which dates back to the 9th century, is a true time travel where you can behold the evolution of art, architecture and imagination in one place.
After lunch and for the evening, we have historical bridges of Si-o Se Pol and Khaju to visit. Si-o Se Pol (or Allah Verdi Khan Bridge) with 33 splendid arches and the 14-arch 133-meter Khaju Bridge were built in the 17th century.
Great tour in a beautiful city with truly lovely people! The mosque and the cathedral were very fascinating, and also the historical bridges over the city river. It was very interesting for me to see Islam and Christianity live in peace next to each other for centuries until today.Charlottefrom Australia
My wife and I came to Isfahan to visit our Iranian friends. Then we decided to explore the city on a one-day guided tour. The whole program went as planned. We visited beautiful sites with great history and interesting stories. We loved the food, people were friendly, and never felt unsafe even for a single moment.Kevinfrom India
