Images of Iran
|by John Walker
Having plenty of time before the departure of our flight from Shiraz to Tehran on Saturday, we returned to the Muzé-yé Pars museum, which was definitely worth a visit. The collection is small but includes some magnificent tapestries and illuminated manuscripts, as well as artefacts dating to prehistoric times. Photography is not permitted in the museum. Here's a view of the reflecting pool in the surrounding gardens; I'm standing with my back to the museum, an interesting building which I found no suitable vantage point from which to photograph.
