Two of the World Heritage List

  • Meidan Emam, Esfahan, “Built by Shah Abbas I the Great at the beginning of the 17th century, and bordered on all sides by monumental buildings linked by a series of two-storeyed arcades, the site is known for the Royal Mosque, the Mosque of Sheykh Lotfollah, the magnificent Portico of Qaysariyyeh and the 15th-century Timurid palace. They are an impressive testimony to the level of social and cultural life in Persia during the Safavid era.” UNESCO
  • Masjed-e Jāmé of Isfahan, “Located in the historic centre of Isfahan, the Masjed-e Jāmé (‘Friday mosque’) can be seen as a stunning illustration of the evolution of mosque architecture over twelve centuries, starting in ad 841. It is the oldest preserved edifice of its type in Iran and a prototype for later mosque designs throughout Central Asia. The complex, covering more than 20,000 m2, is also the first Islamic building that adapted the four-courtyard layout of Sassanid palaces to Islamic religious architecture. Its double-shelled ribbed domes represent an architectural innovation that inspired builders throughout the region. The site also features remarkable decorative details representative of stylistic developments over more than a thousand years of Islamic art.” UNESCO

Meidan Emam, Esfahan is in the list of world heritage published by UNESCO. It is added to the list in 1979.

Masjed-e Jāmé of Isfahan also is in the list of world heritage published by UNESCO. It is added to the list in 2012.

Frequently asked Questions

Can I use my Credit and Debit Cards in Iran?

To buy things, No. But we will accept credit card transfer once you need money in Iran. We also accept PayPal and Bitcoin. We will give you Iranian Rials whenever you needed. Don't worry.

Is it safe to travel to Iran RIGHT NOW?

You Are Safe in Iran and Iranian People Are Very Welcoming. There’s never a right time for those who are worried, anxious or scared. Of course, you need to keep up to date with any major political changes and your country’s own diplomatic ties, but avoid listening to the hive of scaremongering out there and those who say don’t travel in Iran. For example, in June 2018 there were protests about the economic situation in Iran and these took place inside and around the Grand Bazaar in Tehran. It means being aware of any internal demonstrations and staying away from those areas, as you would in any country. In fact, Iran remains as one of the most stable countries in the Middle East. While breaking the rules of Islamic society (including drinking alcohol, taking drugs and engaging in sexual activity with locals) can result in deportation, general travel here is completely safe. Iran’s image of being a terrorist-driven, American bashing, nuclear weapon holding, burka-clad society is something that has been highly driven mainly by western media. “Is Iran safe?” “Isn’t it dangerous in Iran?” are likely to be some of the first questions you encounter from others when you announce you are travelling here. In short: Iran is a safe place to visit.

Internet Access in Iran

Internet in Iran is not superb, but it's good. Most of social media (except Instagram and What’s App) is blocked and you are normally need a VPN.

Currency in Iran – Two names, One Currency

If you take US Dollars or Euros with you to Iran, change them up into Iranian Rial at the local exchange offices (not the dodgy guys on the street or at the hotels which have the lower government exchange rate). Before you know it, you have millions of Rials and it all looks easy. However, while ALL notes state ‘Rial’ there is another ‘currency’ or ‘super unit’ that is used – Toman – which is not listed on any note or coin. Basically, Toman is used by locals and is one-tenth of the Rial total. 1 Toman = 10 Rial. To convert to Rial, you simply add a zero. Lost? It takes a couple of days to get used to, but in the majority of cases, unless stated clearly, all prices are in Toman and not Rial. Hence, the basic equation anywhere in Iran is to add a zero onto printed prices (if ‘Rial’ is not listed), or ask market vendors and others which ‘currency’ they are operating in to save the confusion.

When is the Best Time to Visit Iran?

Iran is a four-season country, which means in different corners of the country you can experience various climates at the same time. So, when is the best time to go to Iran, based on the different climates in the country? As a quick guide to Iran and its geographical mix, we can divide the country into three regions: 1. The Classic Route (Tehran, Qom, Kashan, Isfahan, Yazd and Shiraz) and the Caspian Sea (Mazandaran, Guilan, and Golestan provinces). There are two high seasons: o From early March until late May o From early September until late November 2. The Northwest and West route along the Zagros mountains (Ardabil, Tabriz, Zanjan, Hamedan, Kermanshah, and Sanandaj) o There is one high season, from mid-April until mid-November 3. The Southern route and the ski resorts north of Tehran (Ahwaz, Bushehr, Bandar Abbas (Kish, Qeshm, Hormoz and Hengam islands), Chabahar, Dizin, Shemshak and Tuchal ski resorts) o Only one high season, from late November until late March In between the high seasons from July to September is marked by high temperatures rendering travel on the classic route potentially uncomfortable.

Dress Code in Iran – Headscarves and Hijabs

Iran does have a strict dress code and this is one of the biggest concerns for female travellers to Iran. Most importantly – PACK A HEADSCARF IN YOUR HAND LUGGAGE. It’s called ‘Roosari’ in Farsi and you MUST be wearing it the moment you exit the plane and are officially in Iran. You must wear a headscarf the entire time you are in Iran (except when in your hotel room), as well as loose clothing that covers your body. But let’s get one thing straight – you don’t have to wear a burka or anything that fully covers you. When you arrive you will soon see the reality is far removed from the stereotype. Iranian women are super stylish and proud of their appearance – fashion being a means to stand out and make a statement. The ‘Morality Police’ you hear of do exist in Iran but are not spending their time chasing down foreign visitors, so do not worry too much with that. If anything, you will simply get a polite mention. Visitors have a bit more flexibility when it comes to the rules.
