The Shah Mosque of Isfahan (Iran) is one of the everlasting masterpieces of architecture in Iran. With its 18 million bricks and 475’000 tiles, the mosaic represents a full palette of seven colours: when the light hits its surface, you experience sun, surface- and underwater all at once. No wonder it is registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site! The Mosque’s majestic construction began in 1611 and was renamed after one of the most “unusual” modern revolutions – the Iranian Revolution of 1979 – which had an immense impact internationally, profoundly changing the image of Islam.
