Mohammad Reza Domiri Ganji, an Iranian physics student and amateur photographer, has captured the sacred beauty of Iran’s many mosques in a breathtaking new way. Holy places around the world have been designed to delight and inspire those who enter the buildings, and anyone who has visited the most gorgeous temples and cathedrals on Earth have likely wandered around with their head thrown back and jaw gaping, marveling at the wonders around them.

Fortunately for us, Mr. Ganji’s photographs draw the intricate patterns within each building into single photos that we can marvel at. | INHABITAT
