One of the largest cities of modern Iran, Isfahan is situated 340 kilometers south of Tehran. Today, Isfahan is most famous for its Islamic monuments and Naqsh-i Jahan Square. The squeezes in the F|S collection are from the façade of Imamzadeh Ismail Mausoleum in the former Jewish quarter, and from the façade of a small tomb in the large Mosque of the Shah (Masjed-e Shah) on the southern side of the Naqsh-i Jahan Square, constructed in the seventeenth century.
