In this paper, we intend to study fine examples of Islamic-Iranian architecture prove that the people was aware of the chakra's seven chakras and their attributes and therefore the impact is evident in the architecture. In a comparative study of six by six Persian style, party, Khorasani, mystery, Azeri and selected Isfahani The impact on them was seven chakras and the end of the article is to explore the three effects in both the time before and after the advent of Islam was taken. First, after the arrival of Islam in Iranian architecture, due to open third chakra, fifth, sixth, and seventh shifted. And secondly, the pre-Islamic Persian architecture according to the first chakra and the fourth chakra (see the green of nature and hear the sounds of nature from inside the building) was paid in the third period no reason to focus on the second chakra sex (no orange) is not. As well as by matching the dimensions of the human body chakras in the human body have got to the point that the golden proportion is derived from the human body chakras. In the end, we have come to the conclusion that in the architecture of Iran before the advent of Islam and even after the advent of Islam, whether in meaning and content, or in the form of form, or in space and decorations, the color orange has not been used at all. In the description of the second chakra meaning lust, architects have not used this color in architecture.
