Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque, located in the Naqsh-e Jahan Square of Isfahan city, was built during the reign of Shah Abbas I of the Safavid dynasty.
Plenty of mosaics are used in construction of this mosque. The chief architect of this masterpiece was Sheikh Bahai and many famous calligraphers and artists of Safavid collaborated in its creation.
This mosque has a 45 degree angle for adapting to Mecca. Unlike any other mosque in Iran, it does not have a Sahn or a courtyard.
