An architectural masterpiece of Safavid Alighapoo House more than any history book and more every story shows the true character of Shah Abbas. The three-storey architectural masterpiece coming from one direction, it seems, from the other five floors and four floors On the other hand, the structure is on six floors.

Although under restoration, it was absolutely worth the climb to the top floor..Steps are narrow and high and I did wonder whether the king and the queen had to walk them up every time, but it is worth the try. The royal music room is breathtaking!!! Beautiful artwork, could not stop taking photos!!! The view to Imam's square is breathtaking!!!... More

The interior differs from the rest of the mosque you see in Iran,That makes one to pay a visit to see this other variation of a mosque.Yet it is beautiful!

The Ali Qapu palace is definitely a must go. It is different from the other palaces around Iran. The stairs are narrow and swirl. You might feel a little claustrophobic but its ok. There were some construction work going on when I went there. There are audio guide as well if you wanted one. To me the highlight the the... More

A must visit to match the other amazing historical beauties in the square. There is also a superb view of the square from a balcony floor and the music room at the top has amazingly designed plasterwork(yes that sounds boring but just go and see it!).

one of the must places to visit in Emam Square. The views are spectacular and try to make an effort to check the wall paintings on the top floor.

The building's unique architecture and is related to the Safavid era. In the manufacture of wood and gypsum stone and tiles to be used is beauty.

Who would have thought that this is actually like a 6 level palace ? Such a pretty place with great decorations, staircases and the great music room. A must for Isfahan - close to bazaar, park and simply pretty. Imagine looking out the balcony and watching a polo game whilst taking a bath ( yes they have bath out on... More

The building was built around 400 years ago. You should see details of plasterwork and acrography inside the rooms, specially the music room. Pity the building has not been well maintained. When you stand on the main balcony, you have a great view of Naghshe Jahan (Now Imam) square..
