Peacock tail


This is the inside of the gold dome in the photos below. It's designed to have the sunlight coming in through the hole at the top of the dome create that peacock tail effect.

The Lotfallah mosque was built for the use of the royal family, and was not open to the public. A tunnel leading under the square from the palace directly opposite allowed the women of the harem to come without being seen.
