Ferdowsi University of Mashhad: Main Entrance (North)

This is the main entrance of Ferdowsi University of Mashhad. If you compare this symbolic structure to the school's logo in previous post of yesterday, you may recognize that designers tried to make a symbol similar to what is in the logo. The logo of the school includes a pen (the vertical element), a book (the horizontal element) and a dome (which refers to Emam Reza's dome). This structure looks like the top of the pen in the logo.

There is an interesting poem on the wall of the entrance. It may belong to the famous poet, Ferdowsi. It says:
Do not take a rest in learning
If you want to shine your life
