Photographer's Note

It is the cool morning in my city.The building that set in the foreground is "Imam Mosque". The said mosque is located in the city center of Semnan. This mosque has four large entrances on four sides. The doors to the northern, southern and eastern sides have a vestibule (usually octagonal in shape) and corridors. The upper portion of the northern and eastern doors are arched and artistically worked in plaster and tile. The ceilings of the vestibules, on the north , south and eastern sides are constructed of bricks, and are domed shaped with numerous arches and designed with tiles. There are four porches on four sides along with an area for nocturnal prayers. Behind the western porch is an inscription revealing the final date of construction (1342 AH.).
Here there is a marble pulpit besides the altar. On the top of western porch is a small dome adorned with blue tiles. There is also a tiled inscription from he Holy Qoran, all around the western porch worked in white tiles on a blue (tiled) back ground. After he Islamic revolution, this mosque was repaired by the Cultural Heritage Organization.
My idea from take this shot is: 1. showing the cool morning . 2.showing the Imam Mosque of Semnan in other view and Conduction more information about it.
Enjoy it
