I think it's the most beautiful mosque whole the world with a very clever and amazing combination of Islamic Iranian calligraphy and miniature. You can spend at least one hour to watch the internal dome restlessly.

this mosque has a unique design in terms of plan and color. the painting on the dome is considered as the most significant art work in mosques. if you have a sharp eye you can see a spectacular peacock on the ceiling.

Originally built for the ladies of the court it is not as spectacular as the Imam mosque. But it still has some lovely tile work & a more intimate atmosphere than the bigger mosque. It is worth a visit.
