Agha Bozorg Mosque, Kashan

4.2
#4 of 7 in Sightseeing in Kashan
Religious Site Tourist Spot
Visit Agha Bozorg Mosque to admire one of the finest examples of Islamic religious architecture in the country. Ever since it was built in the 19th century, the mosque has served as a place where believers can pray in peace and listen to the teachings of religious elders, with one part of the site serving as a theological school for those who want to join the clergy. Walk around the colorful garden and enjoy views of the symmetrical buildings, with decorated walls and doors, and the two minarets. Unfortunately, you can visit only the mosque, not the school. With our online itinerary creator, Kashan attractions like Agha Bozorg Mosque can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • The day ends. Running to see the mosque Aghà Bozorg. Beautiful. Majestic, illuminated by the setting sun. A spectacle beyond description. Quiet, with very few people, will have been restored recently, yet there is no water in the tank of ablution

  • I particularly enjoyed here hundreds (!) of beutiful ornaments. Just look at the enclosed pictures. Enjoy.
  • It isn't as impressive as other mosques in Iran but it has a great architecture. There are plenty of spots to take nice pictures.
  • Cool place, especially in the evening when the light effect is brilliant. Great subject for pictures. The Mosque is no longer working but there is no fee. Recommended!
  • It is no longer a functioning Mosque now but it is still worth to explore. The architecture is wonderful and special. The Mosque has a sunken floor, which is a school now. The local people play football or volleyball inside the Mosque.
  • Beautiful mosque in desert city. Free of charge, you can go into it freely.

Where to stay in Kashan

As with many of Iran's cities, tourism in Kashan has not yet reached its full potential and its range of accommodations seems surprisingly sparse. The majority of places to stay sit within walking distance of Agha Bozorg Mosque, with a few additional options lining Amir Kabir Street. Most options come in the form of guesthouses or simple hotels, but a handful of traditional-style luxury accommodations offer a more special experience. Due to restrictions on foreign credit cards, you might have difficulties reserving you room ahead of time.
