Iranian Architecture, depending on materials and various factors have various forms, the geometric proportions is one of the factors affecting the form of building in both Structure and decoration. Geometrical shapes in nature have always inspired Iranian architect. As Architecture is closely tied with geometry, orders and proportions over thousands of years, analyzing shapes and finding geometric ratios used in historical monuments and sites can be used in damaged constructions, which need to rebuild or repair. Therefore, this research tries to discover geometry rules in nature and then reveals that architecture is closely related to geometry, too. This Effort has been made by library studies on the one hand and on the other hand is based on field data to achieve geometrical qualities in different periods of Iran. Analyses done by the author revealed that discovery the geometry rules in historical buildings is the first step to rebuild the loosing parts.
