Is it really necessary to open a new thread about once a day? Just open a thread called "architecture in Iran" and post whatever you want there.

Domtoren (Dom tower) in Utrecht - Holland





















The Dom tower is the symbol of Utrecht, it was completed in AD 1382 *Gregorian calendar* and its height is 112 meters. To this day it is an unwritten law that no other building in the city should be higher than this tower. Only a power station smokestack is higher: 150 m



Power station Lage Weide
