After three days of film watching Tehran we travelled to Isfahan one of the most beautiful cities of Iran. It is said that our city of Hyderabad is built about 400 years ago basing on the architecture of Isfahan.

As we landed in Isfahan we were greeted by children in the airport saying, SALAM and WELCOME to Isfahan in chorus , which made all of us feel very happy.

After watching children's films which were screened in the theaters of Isfahan for day and half , we were taken for sightseeing in Isfahan, which allowed us to explore the city's histories heritage and culture. We also experienced the wonderful hospitality of the Iranians for which they are known for.
