The world’s largest and most beautiful mosaic carpet has turned into a major tourist attraction in the Iranian city of Tabriz, the tourism capital of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in 2018.

The design of this mosaic carpet has been inspired by the design of one of the historical and exquisite Tabriz carpets which dates back to the 11th century and is kept in the Carpet Museum of Iran.

The 42*29-metre carpet has been made with around 500,000 five-centimetre pieces of stones in 12 colours.

The mosaic structure is constructed in Shahid Beheshti Square with the aim of creating a city landscape in the centre, having the history of the Tabriz rung in mind. The project was undertaken in May 2012 as part of the square structure.

The urban space created in the Beheshti Square project is over 22,000 square metres, which includes Karim Khan’s historical mosque, metro station, Silk Tower and surrounding buildings.
