Jameh Mosque, Yazd
This mosque is said to belong to the 15th- to 16th-century Timurid era because of its inscriptions and architectural style, but the main building could be centuries older.
Some believe it's built on an ancient fire temple.
"When I entered the mosque I was amazed by the fantastic artwork in its ceiling," says Ganji. "It got my attention and when I saw that view, I wanted to photograph it.
"The dome of the mosque has amazing arabesque patterns and four skylights that show geometric shapes beautifully.
"Quran verses written all around the dome add to its glory and beauty."
