The holy month of Ramadan is marked with respect and adherence to the fundamental beliefs of Islam, and there is a general air of non-indulgence and goodwill around the city. Eateries all around Isfahan are closed from early morning till sunset, as eating and drinking is forbidden during the daytime – a month of fasting and refraining from all evil acts and thoughts to attain salvation.

At iftar time (around sunset), as the fast breaks, treat yourself to delightful local recipes like the Shole Zard, various kinds of halva, and an assortment of other sweet dishes and juices.
