Ali Qapu Palace Esfahan

On the opposite side of Imam Square to the Ladies Mosque site Ali Qapu Palace. Built at the end of the 1500s it is narrow and tall (48m high with six storeys). Although this might look like a repository for bottles and objects, this is infact the music room on the top floor and the shapes cut into the plasterwork are to improve the acoustics.
