Photographer's Note

Imam Square is one of the largest in the world (500m x 160m), twice as large as Moscow's Red square. It was the symbolic centre of the Safavid Empire and was used for holding festivals, markets and games of polo. The square is surrounded on all four sides by long walls with the Imam Mosque in the south, the Mosque of Sheikh Lotfollah in the east, the Ali Qapu Palace in the west and the entrance of the great Bazaar in the north.
