Sheikh Lotfolah mosque is one of the historical attractions of Isfahan located on Naqshe Jahan square which has definitely unique buff color.

This marvellous mosque was built for royal family so there are not no court and minarets. It's a good place for making pictures and playing with lights. In this mosque you can find out the difference between various types of file works.
