I visited this dome several times. Iranian Islamic architecture is waving in it. Soltaniyeh turquoise dome is visible from a distance of 5 km. Other attractions can be found around Soltanieh's beautiful dome

A great architectural building made of mud with about 700 years old! The patterns on the walls and vaults are awesome. The building is under reconstruction but fortunately you are allowed to go inside.

The dome of Soltaniyeh displays amazing brick work architecture and blue mosaics. It has been undergoing major restoration since the 1970s which is still ongoing, so expect scaffolding. Despite this, the visit is memorable.

This astounding brick dome was built in about 10 years, from 1303. Some forty years ago Queen Farah Diba recognized its value and began restoring it. Since the revolution the work has moved very slowly, and may take another century or two to complete. Meanwhile,...More

Look, it's a fairly impressive dome from the exterior that is a bit of a hassle to reach from Zanjan. Is it worth the effort? As of September 2016 the interior is filled with scaffolding so that you can see absolutely nothing, however this won't...More
