Aavid Dome ( Green Dome ) - Interior View
Aavid Dome is located in Alavian Boulevard. Emamzadeh Abdollah Sq. It is one of the late Seljuks period monuments (14 century A.D,), according to the technical identity certification of this building". Alavid family built it originally as a mosque, then a Crypt was added to it and it became their mausoleum.
In a kenning, Khaghani referred to it as "Gonbad-e-Sabz" (Green Dome ). The reason of calling this monument "Alavid Dome" is that in old days, it has a dome but passing the time caused the dome to be demolished. On the other hand, the great attachment of the people to "Sadat" (descendents of the prophet Mohammad) and their belief in Imam Ali (P.l3.U.H.) are the other reasons.Unfortunately, the identities of the persons who have been buried there arc not clear. This monument IS one of the post-Islamic masterpieces of architecture and Stucco in Hamedan. It has been registered as an Iranian National and Historical monument No 93, dated 1931.1.4.

Wonderful angle and detail to this one, Mehrdad. Is this shot looking up along the columns? Your framing of it is ideal, with strong lines carrying me through the shot to the upper right corner. The textures you've brought out with the angled light are superb as well. Thanks!

As Andrew says, your framing and point of view are ideal and you captured amazing detail in the stonework too. Great note, thank you, for a great image.
All the best
