Esfahan’s Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque is known for its defiantly off-center dome, lack of minarets, and cream-colored interior tiles that shift colors as the sun moves throughout the day. Blues and greens dominate the walls, but the most eye-catching feature is arguably the dome, which has arabesque designs that get smaller and smaller as they approach the center, making it the focal point of attention.
