All About Isfahan City

Isfahan (Esfahan) is located in the center of Iran, 406 kilometers south of Tehran. Isfahan has a population of approximately 1.6 million, making it the third-largest city in Iran. However, it was once one of the largest cities in the world.

Isfahan flourished from 1050 to 1722, particularly in the 16th and 17th centuries under the Safavid dynasty when it became the capital of Persia for the second time in its history under Shah Abbas the Great.
