Architecture of IRAN during Islamic times

There must be over 100 photos here, many of them stunning.

“Although much of Iran’s architecture during the Islamic period has been destroyed over the years, even those of the legendary cities of Nishapur, Ghaz, Ghazni and Tabriz, due to earthquakes or barbarian invading armies, there is still a number of very impressive buildings to show. Iranian architecture has traditionally always been admired and influential throughout history, and Iranian architects have always been highly sought after – resulting in even the Taj Mahal in India — being designed and constructed by Iranian architects.”
