Gorgeous Architectural History of Iran

M1rasoulifard’s Instagram account is filled with gorgeously intricate tessellated ceilings of Iranian mosques.


The kaleidoscopic arrangements of spiraling geometric shapes and indentations are simultaneously hypnotic and mildly disorienting due to the sheer amount of visual stimulation.


Despite not partaking in any organized religion, I’ve always been rather awestruck by religious architecture, as it involves a level of artistry, design acumen and craftsmanship not often seen in other standard buildings.

Whether you worship or not…what’s the most beautiful place of worship you’ve ever seen?
