He chose Isfahan as the capital and built a lot of marvelous buildings in it. Since that time, Isfahan has been dubbed "Nesf-e-Jahan" (Half of the world). At the end of the Safavieh dynasty, Afghans attacked the city and massacre the people. And after that Isfahan was ruined at the end of Qajar dynasty.
