Historical monument of the Soltaniyeh Dome built with the height of 48.5 meters and the diameter of the dome is about 25.5 meters by order of Sultan Mohmmad Khoda Bandeh (Uljayto) constracted from 1303 to 1313 A.D, on the inside of the royal Citadel. The above – mentioned Citadel by square plan to the dimensions 296x314 meters has 16 ramparts and 2 northern and southern gates. It made use of green lime stones. It was currently ranks third after Italy’s Santa Maria church in Florenc and Turkey’s Hagia Sofia mosque in Istanbul. This building is an octagonal that it has been inspired of Sultan Sanjar in Marv. The most construction material is brick. Innovation cohered double – shell structure, the first time in the world’s architecture history in the Soltaniyeh dome. It covered in turquoise blue faience and all kinds of tile setting, tile work, painting on chalk, brick work, stalactite work and plaster work used separately and in simultaneously in the building. The most important and the most beautiful building in Soltaniyeh is the sample of Ilkhanid architecture wich evidently impacts on lots of other historical construction architecture of Iran. The Soltaniyeh dome was registered in The World Heritage list in UNESCO as Iranian seventh property.

un'altra bella immagine di questo monumento iscritto nella lista dei beni tutelati dall'Unesco. E la cosa mi sembra più che legittima vista la sua magnifica imponenza che non sembra aver subito danni significativi dal passare del tempo.
Con questa tua seconda foto ad esso dedicato ci proponi tutta la sua grandiosità inserendolo in una bella composizione nella quale alla struttura severa della sua architettura si contrappone un cielo splendente nel quale si va a confondere lo splendore della sua cupola ricoperta di maioliche come nell'uso delle ricche moschee dell'Iran.
Un ottimo contrastoed un bel punto di vista allietano ulteriormente lo scatto.
Ciao e buona giornata

This image looks a little dark on my monitor, but in under-exposing the photo, you have retained the lovely rich colours that we associate with mosques. Another excellent POV of this fascinating place of worship.
