Isfahan in Iran

Places to visit in Isfahan

Visit Isfahan

Isfahan is undeniably the most beautiful city in Iran. To every traveler, Naqshe Jahan Square, which means the portrait of the world, is dazzling and every corner of this magnificence oozes the ancient aura of Persia and one thousand and one night-like feeling. There are a lot of attraction is Isfahan, such as Si-o-se Pol, Chehel Soton Palace, the beautiful Bazaar of Isfahan, Ali Qapu Palace, etc.

Defined his empire as Iran, the Persian homeland and reigned 1587-1629, the Safavid Shah Abbas made Isfahan his capital in 1597. Isfahan was appealing to Shah Abbas because it had a beautiful environment circled by mountains, plentiful water. So, to consider Isfahan as a Persian Capital is natural. Yet to picture a uniformly Islamic with single language and one culture means paying no attention to fascinating sides of legacy of 17th century Isfahan.

As a core of the Islamic world, Isfahan was posited by its Shiah rulers, and it was the crossroads of international trade and diplomacy, of artistic exchange, of Christian missionary work, a mélange of languages and various religions. Not all the residents of Iran were Persian. Non-Persian Muslims comprised of a large part of the population, particularly Turkman. People conversing in modern Turkish and Uzbek were settled throughout Iran.

Unlike Turks who were called the men of swords and in general they were herdsmen, seminomadic, and highly militarized, Persians lived in the city and were traditional administrators of Iran, and considered themselves as literary people. Therefore, the most important linguistic or ethnic division in Safavid Iran was Between Persian and Turkman, yet many people spoke more than one language.

Of non-Muslim people were those who saw themselves as Persian, more importantly the Zoroastrians who followed a religion which was pre-Islamic, and the Jews who tracked their history many years ago in Iran when Babylonian Exile of the sixth Century B.C occurred; these two groups spoke Persian. Despite the fact that language was an important thing among splitting the various populations of Isfahan, groups maintained their own identity by means of books, manuscripts, and albums, and the images.

The style of painting shown in album leaves from the court of Isfahan should be regarded as the product of various society (for instance, Aqa Reza as a manor artist of Turkman descent). So, the images were not limited to the court, or to Persia. Drawings in king’s service were traded in marketplace, and a lot of them were exported. They fascinate us due to role played by ethnicities, religions, and classes outside the Persian court in Isfahan paintings.

Royal Square (the Meydan) which was built by Shah Abbas in the manner of Islamic tradition, connected his palace the great public Royal Mosque, a smaller personal mosque (the Mosque of Sheikh Lotf-Allah), and the Royal Bazaar.

Isfahan was a center of diplomacy, and more importantly a gigantic trade center, and an international crossroads. Missionaries and merchants were welcome in Shah Abba’s court. Trading with Europe was ongoing, and it was not solely limited to textiles, but also art objects, and of the most significant are delicate Isfahan miniatures collected in Europe as well as magnificent Shah Abbas’s carpets. However, Shah Abbas and his court praised European prints and had European artists to decorate the court.

The presence of non-Muslims was considerable in Iran, and from the earliest victories Islamic law aimed to protect the People of the Book (Jews and Christians), yet in most of Europe non-Christians were forced to convert, and they were given the choice of death or conversion.
