Naqsh-e Jahan Square or as the Iranians would call it, the pattern of the world, shows the splendor of the fifth safavid king, Shah Abbas the great. Shah Abbas 1 and his head architect Ali Akbar Esfahani changed the city structure and expanded the city to the river. Another one of these expansions was designing and building the Naqsh-e Jahan Square (Imam Square) as a symbolic square (the pattern of the world) with representatives of the four main pillars of power.
At 9:00 A.M. walk to Shah square (also called Imam square and Naghshe Jahan square) and visit the monuments around it including Royal mosque (also called SHah mosque, Imam mosque and Abbasi mosque), SHikh Lotfollah mosque and Ali Qapoo palace. Then walk to Chehelsoton, Isfahan Armenian district to see Vank cathedral and its amazing paintings. Also spend some time in its museum to learn more about Armenians.
