Iran is one of the most beautiful countries on earth. Not only for the natural beauty but also for many of the best examples of Islamic art in the world. Here are 10 inspirational Iran wallpapers.
Firstly, let’s start with the UNESCO center of Esfahan. It’s central square is known as Meidan Emam and is surrounded by various mosques as well as palaces. It’s argued that this is the best example of Islamic architecture in the world. However, you’ll find stunning examples all Islamic art throughout Iran but Esfahan is definitely top of the list. Visit at sunrise to have the square to yourself.
Inside the Ganjali Khan Bath Complex in Kerman is a once in a lifetime experience. Nowhere else can you find historic Islamic art in a bath complex. What’s more, with very few tourists you can have all this to yourself. One things for sure, the baths surrounded by art guarantee a unique Iran wallpaper.
Mashad is one of the most important places in the Muslim world. Here you’ll find the tomb of the eight Imam, Imam Reza. For this reason, you’ll find more Islamic architecture than you could ever imagine. As a matter of fact, it’s the largest mosque in the world by area. The reason Esfahan is more well known is because this site is for pilgrims, not tourists. That’s not to say tourists are not welcome because they certainly are.
Iran is famous for the desert but how do you visit the Iranian desert? The small town of Mesr is isolated, part of the desert and has access to a few excellent hotels. As a result, there’s no reason not to visit the Iranian desert! Find Mesr here on the map.
Shiraz, along with Esfahan is Iran’s premier tourist destination. But for a different reason! Known as the pink mosque, its stained glass windows let in colorful light either early morning or evening. A must when you visit Iran and also this lighting makes a wonderful wallpaper!
Before the time of Christ, Persepolis was a thriving city. As a matter of fact, it was once the capital city of the first Persian Empire. Although it’s now ruins, much of it remains and it’s incredible to see what a city looked like before even the mention of Christ (or Islam for that matter).
Tehran is the capital city of Iran and it’s huge. As a result, it’s full of unlimited photography options and therefore you can easily produce several wallpapers here. I have shared a photo of the picturesque Freedom Tower at dusk. Here is the exact location.
Yazd is another UNESCO protected city in Iran. It’s famous for the Amir Chakhmaq Complex and the fountains in front of it. DId you know if you visit during the day the fountains are turned off and there’s a reflecting pool here? Additionally, Yazd is famous for wind towers and the city has hundreds of them.
Ok, to Zanjan and yet another UNESCO site. Soltaniyeh is the mausoleum of Oljaytu. Built in the 14th century, this is an example of Persian architecture.
Rainbow Colored Mountains
As you drive on the highway between Zanjan and Tabriz, you’ll pass Iran’s rainbow colored mountains. You’ve probably seen similar mountains in Argentina, Peru and USA but Iran have their own. With fewer tourists, I’m sure it’ll be more fun exploring these mountains! Nonetheless, these colorful mountains make a super wallpaper!
