A trio of clerics

Isfahan

Iranian clerics always look very pristine and rather grand, I think it is the flowing garments - or perhaps they don’t do anything except read, study and pronouce. A white turban denotes a cleric who is not related to the Prophet, a black turban denotes a cleric related to the Prophet on one side of the family while a green turban denotes a cleric who is related to the Prophet on both sides of his family.
