The walls of The Holy Savior Cathedral are covered in fine frescos and gold leafing while being accompanied with the distinct Armenian motifs. The delicate blue and gold painted central dome depicts Genesis, all in the style of the Iranian miniature. The top registrar is dedicated to the life of Jesus and the bottom registrar depicts the tortures inflicted upon Armenian martyrs by the Ottoman Empire. • • • • #blue #bluesky #blueaesthetic #iran #iranian #irantourist #irantravel #isfahan #isfahanziba #isfahanaks #isfahani #architecture #architecturephotography #persian #persia #persian_art #persianarchitecture #architecturedesign #architecturestudent #history #iranianhistory #tehran #tehran_iran #tehranparty #tehran_luxury #tehranluxury #travel #travelphotography #travelblogger at Esfahan, Iran

Came across this quote this morning. 💙 'Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth' - Rumi Finally had a chance to sit down and add some more details to this one! Extremely excited to show you it all finished! Well once I get to that point insha'Allah! Now to add the 23kt gold leaf. 😊 . . . . . #raanazshahid #wip #mixedmedia #moredevelopment #persianart #iranianart #iranianhistory #persianpattern #persian_art #detailing #blue #gold #Goldleaf #detailersofinstagram #realgold #illuminations #silk #mydubai

‘...Iran; a country with a long complex history that is for the most part unknown to ordinary citizens of Western countries - somethingthat often frustrates and irritates, who are proud of their history and their contribution to world civilization.’ - Michael Axworthy. . This is my whole life in a sentence. This is a fairly dense but really interesting book and I’m loving learning more about the motherland 🤓 . #michaelaxworthy #revolutionaryiran #nonfiction #politicalbooks #politicalscience #bookish #bookworms #bookstagram #iranianhistory #penguinbooksuk #orangespine #bookrecommendations

The walls of Bukhara, here resistance to Islam required the 9th-century Arab commander Qutaiba to convert his province four times. The first three times the citizens reverted to their old religion. Finally, the governor made their religion "difficult for them in every way", turned the local fire temple into a mosque, and encouraged the local population to attend Friday prayers by paying each attendee two dirhams.The cities where Arab governors resided were particularly vulnerable to such pressures, and in these cases the Zoroastrians were left with no choice but to either conform or migrate to regions that had a more amicable administration. • • • • #blue #bluesky #blueaesthetic #iran #iranian #irantourist #irantravel #isfahan #isfahanziba #isfahanaks #isfahani #architecture #architecturephotography #persian #persia #persian_art #persianarchitecture #architecturedesign #architecturestudent #history #iranianhistory #tehran #tehran_iran #tehranparty #tehran_luxury #tehranluxury #travel #travelphotography #travelblogger at Bukhara

One of my most favourite buildings in the world, with strong Zoroastrian architectural influence. The tiger mosaics with a rising sun on their back, on the face of each madrassa arch are interesting, in that they flout the ban in Islam of the depiction of living beings on religious buildings, especially as they represent the more ancient Persian Mithraic religious motifs. #blue #bluesky #blueaesthetic #iran #iranian #irantourist #irantravel #isfahan #isfahanziba #isfahanaks #isfahani #architecture #architecturephotography #persian #persia #persian_art #persianarchitecture #architecturedesign #architecturestudent #history #iranianhistory #tehran #tehran_iran #tehranparty #tehran_luxury #tehranluxury #travel #travelphotography #travelblogger at Samarkand

NEW MAP: Europe 1826: Russo-Persian War of 1826–28 (14 Sep 1826) https://buff.ly/2UuCTBT In 1826 Russian troops encroached on Persian territory in Armenia, disregarding the direct orders of the Tsar—who was focused on the Greek revolution against the Ottoman Empire—not to provoke Persia. The Persians responded by invading the Russian Caucasus, inciting uprisings among local rulers and tribes. Despite initial setbacks, Russia eventually gained the upper hand and in 1828 forced Persia to cede its Armenian territories. #europe #history #welovemaps #map #1820s #1826 #newmap #welovehistory #armenianhistory #russianhistory #iranianhistory #persianhistory #persia #europeanhistory #russianempire #persianempire #greekrevolution #greekindependence #caucasus #september #september14 #ottomanempire #maps #historyteacher #historybuff #historygeek #historynerd #worldhistory #middleeast #southwestasia at Yerevan, Armenia

I’m sick of feeling ashamed of my country and my people. I want to learn more so that I can combat all the lazy racism directed at us. I didn’t grow up in Iran so my knowledge is somewhat limited, but my passport says ‘born in Iran’ and that’s how the world sees me. My goal is to shed light on a country most of you probably only know negative things about. Is the Iranian regime repressive and terrible to women and LGBTQ people and other minorities? Yes, and I wont shy away from discussing that with you guys. I just want us all to see different perspectives and to acknowledge that no populace is inherently evil. . #revolutionaryiran #michaelaxworthy #penguinorangespines #orangespines #penguinuk #iranianhistory #culture #politics #politicalbooks #historybooks #nonfictionbooks #nonfiction #bookworm #currentlyreading

Came across this old photo of my great great grandfather, Mirza-Abdol Hossein Mollah Hassan Kashani. A grand figure for his day, Mirza-Abdol pioneered the use of ordinary objects, such as brooms, as tools for administering punishment to his many servants. He has also been credited for the invention of post-it notes and wet wipes, to name but a few of his many accomplishments. Sadly, a friend of his who had a successful salt dispensary, stole all of his ideas and patents. Mirza-Joon, as he was affectionately known, died alone, impoverished and without any children. #truestory #truehistory #nostalgia #iranianhistory #familyvalues

@azkhanbooks

As a writer I don't have a book that I think is my best, but I often say #TheUnquietDead is dearest to my heart and #AmongTheRuins is the one where I accomplished everything I hoped to accomplish in writing a mystery set partly in Iran. Vicky D'Souza is one of my all-time favorite characters, and I loved the crossover between #AmongTheRuins and my fantasy novel #TheBlackKhan.

از دل تـاریخ مــی‌گویـد سخـن / ارگ ناریـن قلعـه دیـر کهـن قلعـه‌ای تاریخـی از قلـب زمـان / یـک نشـان از قدمـت نـایینیان از مهمترین و قدیمی‌ترین بناهای شهر، «نارین قلعه» یا «نارنج قلعه» بنا بر نوع مصالح و سبک بنا، می‌تواند مربوط به دوران پارتیان یا دوران ساسانیان باشد و احتمالاً آتشگاه بوده‌است. که از آن به عنوان دژ یا کهن دژ شهر استفاده می‌شده‌است. به ویژه آن که این بنا درست درمیان بافت تاریخی نائین قرار گرفته‌است. دربارهٔ کارکرد قلعه اطلاع صحیحی در دست نیست. اما گمان می‌رود این قلعه، همراه با فضای اطراف، مرکز اداری و نظامی شهر بوده‌باشد. متأسفانه امروزه از این بنا چیزی جز چند دیوار خشتی و بقایای یک قلعه عظیم باقی نمانده‌است. دور تا دور قلعه در قدیم خندقی احاطه نموده بودند که از پایین‌ترین قسمت خندق تا بالاترین قسمت بنا در قدیم ۵۰ متر ارتفاع داشته‌است و بنای مذکور به صورت چند ضلعی بوده که چندین برج در گوشه اضلاع آن قرار داشت. جنگ امیر مبارزالدین محمد آل مظفر و ملک اشرف چوپانی در این قلعه روی داد. چندین بار به نائین سفر کرده ام و در زمانها و نورها و جوانب مختلف قلعه را عکاسی کردم که این عکس یکی از استثنائی ترین آنها در این غروب زیبا و نورهای تابیده شده بر آن بود. #naein #isfahan #isfahanziba #castle #casteloftheworld #history #anciantiran #anciantarchitecture #iranianhistory #griffon.architecture #sasanidarchitecture #sunset #sunsetlovers

Persepolis (Old Persian: 𐎱𐎠𐎼𐎿, Pārsa) was the ceremonial capital of the Achaemenid Empire (ca. 550–330 BCE). It is situated 60 km northeast of the city of Shiraz in Fars Province, Iran. The earliest remains of Persepolis date back to 515 BCE. It exemplifies the Achaemenid style of architecture. UNESCO declared the ruins of Persepolis a World Heritage Site in 1979. #Persepolis #persepolisruins #shiraz #Iran #travel #Irantrip #Irantour #Historicalplace #heritage #backpacker #bestfriendgoals #Persianhistory #Iranianhistory #Landmark #Persianempire #takhtejamshid #valuable #fars #ruins #desert #girljourney #adventure #exploringIran #tourism #tourists #touristattraction #Nightbeauty at Persepolis

Since the dawn of the Iranian Parthian Era (2nd century BCE), arches were a defining feature of public buildings. Over the centuries and under the Sasanian dynasty, arches became perfectified with the aim of making the famed pointed arch. The pointed arch that we take for granted today took over a millennium to develop in Iran. #blue #bluesky #blueaesthetic #iran #iranian #irantourist #irantravel #isfahan #isfahanziba #isfahanaks #isfahani #architecture #architecturephotography #persian #persia #persian_art #persianarchitecture #architecturedesign #architecturestudent #history #iranianhistory #tehran #tehran_iran #tehranparty #tehran_luxury #tehranluxury #travel #travelphotography #travelblogger at Samarkand

قلعه باستانی محمدیه نایین(آشورگاه) اين قلعه از معروف ترين بناهاي نايين است كه بالاي كوهي مشرف بر محله زيباي محمديه قرار گرفته است. قلعه عاشورگاه تقريباَ از تمامي نقاط محمديه و از جاده انارك به نايين نيز ديده مي‌شود. به محض ورود به محمديه نخستين بنايي كه به چشم مي‌خورد قلعه عاشورگاه است. بنا بر موقعيت سوق الجيشي اين قلعه احتمالاَ از آن به عنوان دژ دفاعي استفاده مي‌شده است. راهزنان فرهنگي بارها به اين قلعه دستبرد زدند و اشيای عتیقه زيادي از آن به يغما بردند. وجود مجموعه كارگاه هاي سنتي عبا بافي محمديه در مجاور اين قلعه زيبايي آنرا دو چندان نموده است. قدمت اين قلعه را به دوره ي پيش از اسلام تخمين مي‌زنند. با اين همه شكوه قلعه چندان است كه تماشاي آن از تمامي نقاط محمديه روح را بر مي انگيزد. متاسفانه مدت‌هاست که عوامل طبیعی باعث فرسایس شدید در این بنای تاریخی شده است و همچنان این تخریب آرام ادامه دارد. The castle of Ashura is seen from nearly all parts of Mohammadiyah and also from Anarak road to Nayen. Upon entering Mohammadia, the first building to be seen is the castle of the day. The castle was probably used as a defensive castle, according to geographical position. Cultural bandits have repeatedly captured this castle, and many antique items have been taken away. The existence of a traditional workshop of Aba Baffi Mohammadieh has doubled its adjacent castle. Estimates date the castle to the pre-Islamic period. Yet, the splendor of the castle is so much that watching it from all parts of the city of Mohammadia raises the spirit. Unfortunately, the natural causes have been causing severe erosion in this monument for a long time, and this calamity continues. #castle #castles #naein #history #qalehmohammadiyehnayin #historiccastles #fortress #iranianhistory #historical #historicalplaces

Reposted from @the_amateur_historian - As Iranian and pro-Assad forces battle against the ISIS terror group throughout eastern Syria: this image captured on August 7th 2017 by an unidentified ISIS fighter depicts the twenty-six year old Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Third Lieutenant Mohsen Hojaji as he is being held at knifepoint by an anxious ISIS fighter just moments after he was captured. Lieutenant Hojaji was serving as an IRGC adviser to Syrian government forces at the time and on August 7th his position near al-Tanf was hit with a surprise assault by ISIS. After two hours of fighting, an ISIS suicide bomber managed to get through the pro-government lines and detonate his explosives. All resistance was finally crushed by this act and a wounded Lieutenant Hojaji was one of the few who were captured alive. However, after posting a video of his capture for propaganda purposes, ISIS brutally beheaded him with a knife on August 9th: a mere two days after he was first captured. Lieutenant Hojaji's body was later given to the Lebanese Hezbollah by ISIS as part of a ceasefire deal between the two groups on August 31st, and Iran later recovered and buried Hojaji on September 28th 2017 with full military honors in his hometown of Najaf Abad. ISIS was later declared to be territorially defeated in Syria after its final stronghold of Al-Baghuz Fawqani fell to allied forces on March 23rd 2019. _____________________________ #warinsyria #syriancivilwar #syria #iran #islamicrevolutionaryguardcorps #irgc #isis #isil #syrianarmy #syrianhistory #iranianhistory #war #history #historical #historic #warhistory #civilwar #historiansunion #united_historians #combatphotos #warphotography #warphotos #combat #soldiers #historybuff #historynerd #stopcensoringopposingviews #youcannotcensorhistory
