Overview

Come along on this field trip to Persian architecture. The motif of Iranian architecture has been its cosmic symbolism "by which man is brought into communication and participation with the powers of heaven". This theme, shared by virtually all Asia and persisting even into modern times, not only has given unity and continuity to the architecture of Persia, but has been a primary source of its emotional characters as well. In this journey, we are going to discover the ageless monuments of Persian architecture through Iran’s most famous cities.
