Nowadays, with the development of the modern world and population growth, urban sprawl and the formation of new and surrounding cities, identity of the residents and a sense of belonging to the  location and the city is neglected or completely forgotten. One of the things that threats the identity is the globalization and global village phenomenon that eliminated entire traditional boundaries and eventually leads a person can belongs anywhere, but in this situation the person not belong to anywhere and the characteristics and identity of his place will be lost. Thus, society becomes a cultural space without identity, without distinction and more complex. With location features individual identity and sense of belonging to a specific location or city can be created and strengthened. This study was conducted to identify the indices of urban identity and to evaluate the impact of one of the indicators of identifying (religious places).The method used in this research was survey and required data obtained by using questionnaires distributed among 300 residents of neighborhoods of Shahzadeh Ebrahim in the Isfahan city. To measure the impact of identifying indices, structural equation modeling in the Amos Graphic software is used for the statistical analysis.The results of this study show that among the five indices obtained for identity, social index influences on environmental, physical and conceptual indices, environmental index on physical and functional indices and physical index influences on conceptual index and there is a significant relationship and correlation between the indices. From existing relationships, the highest correlation is related to the impact of social index on conceptual index and lowest amount is related to the impact of conceptual index on the physical index.
