Sunrays soaking my soul through the openings of Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque

Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque is one of the purest manifestations of islamic architecture in Iran. The whole architecture and its relation with light is what makes it magical and a masterpiece which binds with people's souls. It doesn't matter whether visitors know about architecture or they don't. The sense of place and space and literary every detail used in it is unworldly and rapturous. So this photo is trying to elaborate these vast feelings and unattainable dexterities which no longer exist and in other words, which lets our existance free of any worldly entanglements.
