Palace Ali Qapu is under renovation. You need to take it into consideration. Some rooms are closed or during painting. On the top rooms you will find nice place with great acoustic.

Seven floors and unique interior architecture. Located next to the Naqsh-e - Jahan Square. While going around to see the square, and looking from the other side of the beautiful unique square, this palace looks particularly dramatic from a distance.

They advertise before we enter that the terrace is closed for renovations. No problem. But they could lower the price then. Cool palace, not the most interesting I guess if the terrace over the square is closed.

A small and busy little place off to one side of the great square in Isfahan. Some unique fretwork which were designed to help the acoustics or to help cool the place depending on who you ask. Several floors all via steps but the top...More
