Architecture of IRAN during Islamic times
Although much of Iran's architecture during the Islamic period has been destroyed over the years, even those of the legendary cities of Nishapur, Ghazni and Tabriz, due to earthquakes or barbarian invading armies, there is still a number of very impressive buildings to show. Iranian architecture has traditionally always been admired and influential throughout history, and Iranian architects have always been highly sought after - resulting in even the Taj Mahal in India being designed and constructed by Iranian architects.

Your photos are beautiful. They inspire me to travel everyday (I have the image that's a closeup of the mosaic of tiger and the sun as my desktop).

Yes, these photos are really beautiful. Don't you know by any chance where these tiger and sun were photographed?

I actually don't know where that mosaic is. Do you?

It's a pity, since I don't know it too. But I'd like to know.
