Spread over 5,000 square meters, Tabatabaei House is a famous historical house which was built by the affluent Tabatabaei family with luxurious decorations, originality of architecture and the appropriate design for climatic conditions of the region.

Constructed between 1598 and 1629, it is now an important historical site, and one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites. Here we will visit Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque, one of the architectural masterpieces of Iranian architecture built during the Safavid Empire.

After our tour here we will visit the Royal Mosque (also known as the Shah Mosque or Imam Mosque) which presents the rich history, art and culture of Isfahan city with elaborate architecture typical of Persian Mosques. Its construction began in 1611, and its splendour is mainly due to the beauty of its sevencolour mosaic tiles and calligraphic inscriptions.

We will begin our tour at the Tower of Silence, a circular, raised structure used by the Zoroastrian for exposure of the dead. The tower, also known as a Dakhme, originally denoted any place for the dead. Next we will be visiting the Zoroastrian Fire Temple. This is the most important of the fire temples, built in 1934 and the only fire temple in Iran that houses the Atash Varham, meaning ‘victorious fire’. It is believed that the secret flame behind the glass here has been burning for about 1500 years. After our tour here we will head to the grand congregational Jameh Mosque of Yazd, dating back to the 12th century and regarded as a truly outstanding building. It is believed that the mosque was built on the ruins of the Sassanid fire temple by Ala'oddoleh Garshasb during the Al-e-Bouyeh dynasty and was largely rebuilt in the 14th century. Following this we will visit the Water Museum, one the most valuable architectural monuments of the city, situated in the Kolahdouz-Ha house in the north of Chakhmagh Square.

After our visit here we will enjoy a tour at Hafez tomb and the Eram Garden (also aptly known as the Garden of Paradise). The establishment of the Eram Garden dates back to the Seljuk dynasty in the 16th century.
