Imam Square which is also called Shah Square or Naqshe Jahan Square is one the biggest squares in the world. This square is a combination of religion, politice and economy, since you can see tow mosques there in addition to the palace of the Safavid kings and the bazaar which makes a comprehensive sense in the hearts of the visitor. Imam Mosque is the best part of the square. so try not miss it.

Naqsh-e Jahan Square which Known as Imam Square, this place as the most famous attraction of Isfahan city is placed at the center of Isfahan. You can see the Imam Mosque on the south side of the street. Opposite this mosque stands Ali Qapu and on the eastern side another mosque known as Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque. Inside the square, there are some horses with their carriages on which you can do horseback riding. There is also a long bazaar around these monuments where you can go shopping and buy souvenirs. The architecture of this amazing and gorgeous square is also unique as it is one of the largest squares in the whole world. I think it is well worth seeing.
