Photographer's Note

The main attraction of Imam Mosque (completed in 1638) is the main dome of its prayer hall. It’s a double cupola 38 meters high on the inside and 52 meters on the outside leaving a 12 meter empty space which serves as an extraordinary " echo chamber". Consequently the speaker in the mehrab (alter) can be distinctly heard in all other parts of the mosque. In the center of the great prayer hall there are few black paving stones underneath the dome, which stamped upon create seven clear echoes. The photo shows people gathered around these stones.
