Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque
It is one of the architectural masterpieces of Safavid Iranian architecture, standing on the eastern side of Naghsh-i Jahan Square, Isfahan, Iran. Construction of the mosque started in 1603 and was finished in 1619. It was built by the chief architect Shaykh Bahai, during the reign of Shah Abbas I of the Safavid dynasty.
The purpose of this mosque was for it to be a private mosque of the royal court, unlike the Shah mosque, which was meant for the public. For this reason, the mosque does not have any minarets and is of a smaller size.
