Dome of Soltaniyeh
The central magnet of Soltaniyeh's several ruins is the Mausoleum of Il-khan Öljeitü also known as Muhammad Khodabandeh, traditionally known as the Dome of Soltaniyeh in Soltaniyeh city, Zanjan Province. The structure, erected from 1302 to 1312 AD, has the oldest double-shell dome in Iran. This view of the construction was made by Dieulafoy but is disputed by André Godard. In Godard's view it is a normal, if spectacularly large dome, with a thin skin on top for the faience and is in no way a double dome. Its importance in the Muslim world may be compared to that of Brunelleschi's cupola for Christian architecture. It is one of the largest brick domes in the world, just at the theoretical engineering limit for a brick dome and the third largest dome in the world after the domes of Florence Cathedral and Hagia Sophia. The Dome of Soltaniyeh paved the way for more daring Iranian-style cupola constructions in the Muslim world, such as the Mausoleum of Khoja Ahmed Yasavi and the Taj Mahal. Much of its exterior decoration has been lost, but the interior retains superb mosaics, faience, and murals. People have described the architecture of the building as “anticipating the Taj Mahal.”
Overflying Iran enroute from Mumbai to London Heathrow today ✈️ - A new route for me, a new destination, a dayflight for once 😉, with a great crew! Loved operating in European airspace again!
Now my days off started; I was scheduled to position back to Hong Kong from London tomorrow (to fly as a passenger for the company, back to home base). But my plan is to fly to Amsterdam in the morning and visit home for 2 days 😍 and then position back from Amsterdam instead 🇳🇱 Fingers crossed as I got a standby ticket 🤞
هواي اتاق من دلتنگ شده ... درسته چيزي از من در تو ميتپد و من حسش ميكنم مثل همين كه من تو را و تو مرا زودتر از حفظ كرده ايم مثل شعر هاي دبستان !
اما از كلنجار با خودم بابت تاخير ت
خسته ام !
من با خودم جنگ دارم كه چرا بهار نيامدي ! چرا دير كردي ! و چرا پاييز ! تو با خودت كلنجار حفره هاي من را ميروي ! و تمام چراهاي من ! من ميگويم عاشقم و تو بالاي ايوان نشستي و من را متر ميزني ! و ميترسي از عاشقي ... حالا من پريدم از همان بوم قديمي و قرار دارم با اوني كه هر شب سر قرار بود ! من بيتاب تو بودم و تو مرا تاب ميدهي ! من سُر سران اغوشت
و تو سراسر گلايه اي و من را سُر ميخوري شنيدم كه به باد ميگفتي هستم تا وقتي كه هست !
اما بايد ميگفتم هستمِ من تا ندارد مثل همين بي تابي هر روز است و روي زمين مجهول است
بايد به تو ميگفتم كه
هنوزم ديدنت براي من عمر دوباره است و راستش امروز فهميدم كلي خيابان مانده كه من و تو را كم دارد
كه بجاي بي تابي ... دستانمان را در ان تاب بدهيم و در انتهايش محو شويم ... ميشود هر روز بيايي راستش ترس نبودنت منو هر شب بغض ميكند و نميتركد ... لطفا زودتر بيدار شويد

Iran, khorasan razavi, kalat city
Khorshid (Sun) Palace or Khorshid Mansion is one of the most elegant palaces in Iran that was built to the order of Nadir Shah Afshar, founder of Afsharieh Dynasty at the beginning of his reign and in 1108 solar year. The palace is in Kalat City and 150 kilometers from Mashhad in Khorasan Razavi Province.
This palace is in the center of an enormous garden and has three floors. It is a tombyard and not a living place or king palace. It was built with the intention of being Nadir Shah’s shrine. However, it was never completed and it was left half-way when Nadir Shah died. The interior inscriptions hold verses of Naba’ Surah that is about death and life after death. The shape of the building also confirms this issue. Changes were applied on it in the next periods by Qajar people so that it would become suitable for settlement and government 🌸source: 🌸

Iran, Mazandaran, Behshahr, Abbas Abbad.
Abbas Abbad which is famous for its greenery and beauty and also its historic significance is a major tourism attraction.
Built at the order of Abbas I of Persia in the southeast of Behshahr in the midst of the Jungle, Abbasabad complex marks Iran’s most prominent non-desert garden which comprises a lake, a palace, towers as well as showers while a mansion in the middle of the lake has given it outstanding beauty.
The building hides underwater for more than half of the year(aututmn & winter) ; nevertheless, in the seasons of drought the whole structure, which has stood the test of time, resides out of the water. (spring & summer)
