Naghshe Jahan Square is one of the first Iranian works to be inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Naghshe Jahan Square is a rectangular square 560 meters long and 160 meters wide. The building in the current form of Naghshe Jahan Square belongs to the Safavid period and the date of completion of construction in 1315 AD and 1636 AD.

The French knight Jean Chardin has called Naghsh-e Jahan the most beautiful square in the world. During the reign of Shah Abbas the Great and his successors, the square was a place for polo, army parades, lighting, and various shows during the days of royal celebrations, and for people to walk and shop on other days.

Two stone polo gates from that period still remain on the field, which indicates the practice of polo in that period and is the oldest polo gate in the world.

Naghsh Jahan Square and its surrounding area have been completely dedicated to walking and strolling in recent years. Of course, cycling and Carriage riding are allowed in this square.
