Entrance Lotfullah Mosques

Entrance Lotfullah Mosques

Isfahan

Like the Blue Mosque, the entryway to the Lotfollah Mosque deviates to realign it to Mecca from its position on the maidan. The three bends have been so skillfully executed that to most people only one turn is discernible. The corridor is perhaps deliberately narrow and dimly-lit to provide the contrast when at the end the visitor comes upon the exalted splendor of the domed hall.
