The mausoleum's dome, or gonbad, is over 150 feet high and is the highlight of the complex. Covered in turquoise, the dome is a fine example of early Islamic architecture.

I visited this dome several times. Iranian Islamic architecture is waving in it. Soltaniyeh turquoise dome is visible from a distance of 5 km. Other attractions can be found around Soltanieh's beautiful dome
