Amir Chakhmaq Complex is one of the most beautiful architectural and tile works of the nineteenth century. The Amir Chakhmaq is very much beyond what we now know about the concept of the square. This square can be considered an ancient city alone, and it is absolutely essential for those who go to Yazd.
Azadi Square, known as Shahiyad Square before the Islamic Revolution, is the largest square in Tehran. Tehran's Azadi Square architecture is very unique, and the Azadi Tower has become a symbol of Iran due to this beautiful architecture. Each section of this unique structure refers to one of the historical periods in Iran. For example, the foundations of the Achaemenid architecture, the main arch of the Sasanian architecture and the high arch of the architecture of the post-Islam period have been inspired. It should be noted that one of the main components in most Iranian structures is dome, which is also a very beautiful example in the Azadi Tower.
Iran's Squares; The square is said to be in open air in the Persian language, which is the intersection of several streets in cities and villages, which were used as a gathering place for people or for the flow of traffic. Of course, in the Persian language, there are different definitions of the square, which means that the square is sometimes used to fight, sometimes to buy and sell, and sometimes to cross the passage. In a general definition; Squares in the past have vast open spaces along the roads or intersections of roads and streets that have social, communicative, commercial, governmental, military or a combination of two or more functions. Other Squares of operation in the past include: public square, neighborhood square, sports Square, outbuilding square, urban square, area square, neighborhood square.
But today the function of the Squares has changed, and most of the classical functions of the Squares have been transferred to cultural-commercial buildings and complexes, and the various social functions of the past can no longer be expected. By increasing the traffic of cars in the cities, the phenomenon of street traffic caused, at the intersection of the axes, the gates instead of the Squares in the form of distribution of vehicles.
The most important urban squares of Iran are: Major Qapu Square in Ardebil, Isfahan Shrine Square, Isfahan Square, Isfahan Atiq Square, Azadi Square in Tehran.
