The Friday Mosque may looked similar to other grand mosques in Iran. However, if you go inside, you will find out that it was so special that it was built in different era and you can see the differences. It is the largest mosque in Iran and not many tourists come here. Entrance is around US$5.
The simplicity of this mosque offers a certain grandeur! A must-see
It`s so magical and marvelous place to visit! It was my dream to go there after I saw a movie about Jameh Mosque. Just one year after my dream came true, and I had chance to see this architecture wonder...It was in the winter, but the weather was soft, and I took some nice photos. I was impressed from the gorgeous blue mosque, surrounding the huge area, the amazing arcs and dark blue color and ornaments. I never will forget this place.
