    Isfahan...nisf-e-jahaan ast..


    Recently we discussed the great cities of pakistan --and i am currently reading a book called "Taarikh-e-Punjab ma' taarikh-e-lahore" (actually abhi sirf library se laaya hoon, paRhi nahin hai..)--to it got me thinking ke in Iran it is said (and in our qadeemi lit. as well which is basically an extension of Farsi lit.) ke isfahaan nisf-e-jahaan ast (yaani Isfahan is half of the world)--to I was wondering if anyone here on Gupshup has ever visited Isfahan and what it is like?

            In 1996, I had a chance to visit Iran and I visited 3 cities; Tehran, Isfahan, & Sheeraz.

            What exactly you are looking for!!!

            Sheeraz was better and I was more interested in it coz of Saadi Sherazi.




              Nadeem bhai--just a general description of what it is like--its architecture/plan/people/sites/culture/food...sab kuchh--akhir kyon isse nisf-e-jahaan kehte hain?

              Isfahan also has many famous ulama and mashaikhs whose mazaars are there i think...

              Shaikh Saadi --subhan Allah! Hafiz of course is also in Shiraz...

              aur aap Nishapur gaye thay?
