ISFAHAN-PERSIAN RUGS Syracuse, NY

In the middle of Iran with the Zagros mountains to the left and the desert to the right, lies the city of Isfahan. Today, it is an important industrial city with a population of over 1 million inhabitants. For many people Isfahan probably is the main attraction in Iran. Architecturally, the city is a masterwork and one of the finest in the islamic world. The great Imam square with two mosques together with the palaces, the parks and the old bridges creates a mood that lets the visitor feel that this really is the Orient.
