The Shah Cherag Mausoleum houses a stunning mosque which we see from outside, with the highlight being the dazzling mirrored interior.

Another stop on our tour is Naqsh-e-Rostam,’ an ancient necropolis located just 12 km outside of Persepolis and houses the tombs of Iran’s most valued kings and dates back to the first millennium BC. These tombs belonged to four Achaemenid kings and are carved out of the rock face from a very high point. On the way to Yazd, we stop to see old Cypress / cedar tree in abarghu which is estimated to be over four millennia old & second oldest living thing in Asia.

Here, they have one of their holiest sites, the Fire Temple, which has a flame which they claim hasn’t stopped burning since the 5th century. Just outside of the old city, you find the Amir Chakhmaq complex, the famous three-storey facade building and the main landmark in the city, houses one of the finest mosques in the region and a square by the same name is beautiful with alcoves that reflect an interplay of light and shade. Later, we drive to Isfahan where the monuments are a study in poetry with intricate calligraphy, mosaic tiles and impressive architecture.
