Photographer's Note

The most famous Persian description of the city of Esfahan is Esfahan nesf-e jahan (Esfahan is half the world), which the Esfahanis coined in the 16th century to express the city's grandeur. You may well agree that it has a ring of truth even today.Chardin, a dependable observer according to Arthur Upham Pope, reports that in 1666 Esfahan had 162 mosques, 48 schools , 182 caravansaries and 173 baths.
