Vibrant tiles in complex geometric patterns adorn the domed prayer hall in the Sheik Lotfallah mosque in Isfahan, Iran (1603–19). The interior glows with light filtered through double ceramic grilles that cover 16 windows in the drum under the dome.
In Isfahan, Iran, the Khaju Bridge (1642–67) not only controls the flow of the Zayanderud River but also provides space for recreation and leisure. With 24 arches and covered arcades on two stories, it offers separate lanes for pedestrians and caravans, as well as steps down to the water on the lower side of each pier.
