Incredible the ceiling in the Capitoline museum is very nice looking and the Sculpture of what I think is a Pope looks great also. The frescoes are also very much in harmony with the entire room.Great pics

Come on! There are dozens of monuments in Iran who deserve much more than this contemporary mirror-tiled dome (1950-60s).
The Shah Cherag is undoubtedly a valuable historical record, extensively rebuilt over the times.
But as a matter of work of art, that interior is a poor kitschy outcome.
