Isfahan

You may never have the good fortune of visiting Isfahan but to get a glimpse of the city, I highly recommend a visit to http://www.360cities.net/area/isfahan-iran.

Select one of the images there and take a 360 degree view of one of the corners of this amazing Persian city.

It would be difficult for me to recommend any of these images as exemplary but if you do visit the Sheikh Lotfallah Masjid, ensure that you turn the viewing angle towards its magnificent ceiling.

Hopefully, I will be lucky enough to visit Isfahan during early January of 2009, during two weeks I'm taking off from work.

going Iran again, that's great. are you planning on skiing there this year too? How about visiting Shiraz? that's my hometown.

Dear Pooya - I have been to Shiraz several times before. Of course, it is a wonderful city. This time, I may need to spend more time in Tehran. However, if I get an opportunity, visiting Shiraz would be a highlight. By the way, here are some pictures form Persepolis from 2003: http://flickr.com/photos/mortazavi/sets/72157594514981841/

With my bigger monitor, i get the bigger picture, when you post these beautiful links. i was lost in Persia for an hour. You make dreams, become real frame by frame. Peace and Joy be upon you and your family.

GerwingR: Thank you very much, and you're welcome. Note that the pictures are actually organized and taken by someone else. A friend pointed me to them. I simply wrote about it here.

Maryam: I visited Johobin Idea Processing website and was surprised how Java ME is being used to host Nedayeh Tohid software. I wouldn't mind purchasing one for my Java enabled Sony Ericsson P1i mobile phone. (I tried to order one.)
