6) Naghsh-e Jahan Square, Isfahan (evening visit) - a great place to spend the evening, picnics for locals and family nights till the wee hours ! My first visit to this UNESCO site ! Just fall in love with the ambience & surrounding environment in this mega square ! A charming place for foreign tourists to admire ! Isfahan was voted as one of 100 Best Cities in the World by Lonely Planet in 2009 ! 

Nagahsh-e Jahan Square is located in the center of Isfahan, built between 1598 & 1629, an important historical site. Also called Shah Square or Imam Square. The Square is surrounded by buildings from the Safavid era. At the southern side is the Shah Mosque, the west is the Ali Qapu Palace & the east is the Lotf Allah Mosque. The northern side of Keisaria Gate is the Isfahan Grand Bazaar.
