Kish Island

This is Kish Island of Iran. A very beautiful place in Persian Gulf. This place is a must see and the main vacation spot for all the Persians and majority of tourists that visit Iran. It is only 1 hour 20 minutes flight from Tehran. In this Island there are lots of luxurious beautiful hotels and resorts and world class shopping malls, architecture and amenities. Also they have some historic parts in the island too. Kish is always under construction making place for greater things to come in it!
Thanks by Alitezar.



Kish is located in the Persian Gulf and has an area of around 91 km². Along Kish's coast are coral reefs and many other small islands. The climate of Kish is mild in the winter and hot and humid in the summer. Kish island has a surface area of 90 square kilometers, with an outer boundary of 40 km, and a nearly elliptical shape. It is located in the Persian Gulf 19 km from mainland Iran. The Island is positioned along the 1359km long Iranian coastline north of the Persian Gulf, at the first quarter from the Hormuz entrance to the Gulf. Its longitudinal and latitudinal positions are 26.32 and 53.58 degrees respectively. The Island is 15.45 km long from west coast to the east coast. (The distance between Mariam Complex and Hoor field). Its maximum width extending from the southern shorelines to the northern shorelines is 7.5 km. (The distance between Gomrok Port and the lighthouse.) The island's surface is flat, lacking mountains or even high hills. Kish International Airport is built in the center on an elevated area 35-40 meters from the sea level. Its highest surface inclination extends from the airport to the shores near Shayan hotel,
Since the mid-1990s the Iranian government has embarked on an aggressive promotional and developmental campaign to tailor Kish as a rival to Dubai but mainly a big rival to Doha. Steps taken in order to accomplish this include launching massive construction projects and programs designed to attract foreign investment and trade. Within the area of the Kish Free Zone, as it is known, the standard laws of the Islamic Republic of Iran are far more relaxed than on the mainland, which has resulted in significant increases in mostly domestic tourist population over the years, as well as in international trade on the island. However, alcohol is not available on the island, just like the rest of Iran. It has been suggested that this is a significant barrier for the development of Kish because an alcohol free island is somewhat unsuitable for western tourists. The population of the island includes significant numbers of both Muslims and Christians.

Iran is ranked 68th in world tourism but we don't have good relations with other country's and every news they show on media and ... about iran is always about terrorism and nuclear weapons and beceause of that people think Iran isn't safe, and they don't make many travel commercials about Iran.

Sheikh Lotf Allah Mosque (Masjed-e Sheikh Lotf-o-llah in Persian or مسجد شيخ لطف الّله ) is one of the architectural masterpieces of Safavid Iranian architecture, standing on the eastern side of Naghsh-i Jahan Square, Isfahan, Iran.

It was built in 1615 by the orders of Shah Abbas I of the Safavid dynasty.

The architect (Mimar) of the edifice was Muhammad Reza ibn Ustad Hosein Banna Isfahani. He finished construction of the mosque in 1618.

مسجد شیخ لطف الله دراصفهان
مسجد شیخ لطف الله درقسمت شرق میدان امام (نقش جهان) قرار گرفته است که به عنوان یک مکان کوچک مقدس درجلوی استخر ودرقسمت سایه دار این میدان در زمان شاه عباس بین سالهای 1602 و1619 میلادی ساخته شده است. نام این مسجد بنام فردی گذاشته شد که یک دانش پژوه ومحقق اسلامی به شمار می رفت ودرآن زمان وی را بسیار ستایش می کردند. شاه درآن زمان این شیخ را که اهل لبنان بود , ابتدا به مشهد ونزدیک بارگاه امام رضا دعوت کرد وسپس وی را در پایتخت به عنوان مسئول مسجد شاه ومدرسه الهیات منصوب کرد. تزیینات ایوان ورودی این مسجد شامل موزاییک های زرد وآبی است که زیبایی آن از ایوان بزرگ مسجد امام پیشی می گیرد. این مسجد کوچک هیچ محوطه داخلی مرکزی ای ندارد و تنها دارای یک جایگاه نماز است که نزدیک راهرو می باشد. اما واقعیت ارزشمنداین مسجدزیبایی موزاییک های دیواری آن دراصفهان می باشد که تا نوک مسجد نیز رسیده اند. در کیفیت مواد آن هیچ نقصی وجود ندارد. توازن و هماهنگی رنگها بی نظیر است . دیوارهای آن با فرشهای بسیار مجللی تزیین شده اند که دارای طرحهای هندسی طلاکاری شده می باشند که بر روی زمینه سبز آبی قرار گرفته اند. درسنگ نوشته ای که بر روی محراب قرار گرفته نام معمار این مسجد ذکر شده است , مرد فقیر و متواضعی که به دنبال بخشش خداوند بود و استاد محمد رضا فرزند استاد حسین نام داشت , وی در1028 هجری شمسی می زیست . این مسجد دارای ویژگیهای عجیبی نیز می باشد چون جایگاه و گنبد لعاب نداده آن , فقدان بارگاه مرکزی و ایوانها و تالارمقدس خالی که از سقف تا زمین با موزاییکهایی با بهترین کیفیت پوشیده شده است. کاشی کاریهای سقف آن یکی ازپیچیده ترین نمونه ها دراصفهان می باشد و کیفیت آن بسیار مرغوب است. این بنا بطور بسیار ماهرانه و زیبا در سالهای 1954 و1956 بازسازی شد.‎

Persepolis,Shiraz the heart of Persia

Archaeological evidence shows that the earliest remains of Persepolis date from around 515 BC. André Godard, the French archaeologist who excavated Persepolis in the early 1930s, believed that Cyrus the Great chose the site of Persepolis, but that Darius the Great built the terrace and the great palaces.

Darius ordered the construction of the Apadana Palace and the Debating Hall (the Tripylon or three-gated hall), the main imperial Treasury and its surroundings. These were completed during the reign of his son, King Xerxes I. Further construction of the buildings on the terrace continued until the downfall of the Achaemenid dynasty

The first westerner to visit the ruins of Persepolis was Antonio de Gouveia, from Portugal, who wrote about cuneiform inscriptions following his visit in 1602. His first written report on Persia, the "Jornada", was published in 1606.

The first scientific excavation at Persepolis was carried out by Ernst Herzfeld in 1931, commissioned by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago. Herzfeld believed the reasons behind the construction of Persepolis were the need for a majestic atmosphere, a symbol for their empire, and to celebrate special events, especially the “Nowruz”. For historical reasons, Persepolis was built where the Achaemenid Dynasty was founded, although it was not the center of the empire at that time.

Persepolitan architecture is noted for its use of wooden columns. Architects resorted to stone only when the largest cedars of Lebanon or teak trees of India did not fulfill the required sizes. Column bases and capitals were made of stone, even on wooden shafts, but the existence of wooden capitals is probable.

The buildings at Persepolis include three general groupings: military quarters, the treasury, and the reception halls and occasional houses for the King. Noted structures include the Great Stairway, the Gate of Nations (Xerxes), the Apadana Palace of Darius, the Hall of a Hundred Columns, the Tripylon Hall and Tachara Palace of Darius, the Hadish Palace of Xerxes, the palace of Artaxerxes III, the Imperial Treasury, the Royal Stables and the Chariot House

Persepolis is near the small river Pulwar, which flows into the river Kur (Kyrus). The site includes a 125,000 square meter terrace, partly artificially constructed and partly cut out of a mountain, with its east side leaning on Kuh-e Rahmet ("the Mountain of Mercy"). The other three sides are formed by retaining walls, which vary in height with the slope of the ground. From 5 to 13 meters on the west side a double stair, gently slopes to the top. To create the level terrace, depressions were filled with soil and heavy rocks, which were joined together with metal clips. Around 518 BC, construction of a broad stairway was begun. The stairway was planned to be the main entrance to the terrace 20 meters above the ground. The dual stairway, known as the Persepolitan stairway, was built in symmetrically on the western side of the Great Wall. The 111 steps were 6.9 meters wide with treads of 31 centimetres and rises of 10 centimetres. Originally, the steps were believed to have been constructed to allow for nobles and royalty to ascend by horseback. New theories suggest that the shallow risers allowed visiting dignitaries to maintain a regal appearance while ascending. The top of the stairways led to a small yard in the north-eastern side of the terrace, opposite the Gate of Nations.

Gray limestone was the main building material used in Persepolis. After natural rock had been levelled and the depressions filled in, the terrace was prepared. Major tunnels for sewage were dug underground through the rock. A large elevated water storage tank was carved at the eastern foot of the mountain. Professor Olmstead suggested the cistern was constructed at the same time that construction of the towers began.

The uneven plan of the foundation of the terrace acted like a castle whose angled walls enabled its defenders to target any section of the external front. Diodorus writes that Persepolis had three walls with ramparts, which all had towers to provide protection space for the defense personnel. The first wall was 7 meters tall, the second, 14 meters and the third wall, which covered all four sides, was 27 meters in height, though no presence of the wall exists in modern times.

Destruction:

After invading Persia, Alexander the Great sent the main force of his army to Persepolis in the year 330 BC. By the Royal Road, Alexander stormed the Persian Gates (in the modern Zagros Mountains), then quickly captured Persepolis before its treasury could be looted. After several months Alexander allowed his troops to loot Persepolis. A fire broke out in the eastern palace of Xerxes and spread to the rest of the city. It is not clear if it had been a drunken accident, or a deliberate act of revenge for the burning of the Acropolis of Athens during the Second Hellenic-Persian War. Many historians argue that while Alexander's army celebrated with a symposium they decided to take revenge against Persians. In that case it would be a combination of the two. The Book of Arda Wiraz, a Zoroastrian work composed in the 3rd or 4th century CE, also describes archives containing "all the Avesta and Zand, written upon prepared cow-skins, and with gold ink" that were destroyed.

Borj-e Milad (aka Milad Tower, Persian: برج میلاد ) (Persian: birth) is the tallest tower in Iran. Built in between the Shahrak-e Gharb and Gisha districts of Tehran, it stands 435 m (1,427 ft) high from base to tip of the antenna. The head consists of a large pod with 12 floors, the roof of which is at 315 m (1,033 ft). Below this is a staircase and elevators to reach the area. Milad tower is the fourth tallest tower in the world after the CN Tower in Toronto, Ostankino Tower in Moscow, and the Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai. It is also currently 12th tallest freestanding structure in the world.

Milad tower is part of The Tehran International Trade and Convention Center. The project includes the Milad telecommunication tower offering restaurants at the top with spectacular views of Tehran, a five-star hotel, a convention center, a world trade center, and an IT park (to be completed by March 2007). The complex seeks to respond to the needs of business in the globalized world of the 21st century by offering facilities combining trade, information, communication, convention and accommodation all in one place.

The complex features a parking area of 27,000 square meters, a large computer and telecommunication unit, a cultural and scientific unit, a commercial transaction center, a temporary showroom for exhibiting products, a specialized library, an exhibition hall and an administrative unit. Milad Tower has an octagonal base, symbolizing traditional Persian architecture.

Iran is very inviting but I have to admit that Sharia Law scares me a little. I wouldn't want to accidentally do something I'm not supposed to, or be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

...Imagine I accidentally went to the nude women's beach. They might cut off my testicles.
