Iran is a country that is rich in culture and surprisingly, architecture. Its art is deeply rooted in its faith and customs which makes it astonishingly attractive and awe-inspiring. An Instagram photographer was able to capture the ornate details of the ceiling art of the country, and the images are absolutely breathtaking.

Some of the ceilings are over 900 years old, yet the details of the artwork are still exquisite up to this day. The designs are well thought of and crafted painstakingly that it must have taken years for each ceiling design to be finished. No two ceilings are the same and from the looks of the photos below it seems like each design gets more intricate than the first one.
