With five concave ceilings, elaborately carved pillars, and an impressive winter prayer hall, the mosque stands out as an architectural masterpiece.

  • Without any doubt this mosque is one of the most beautiful mosques that I've ever seen in my life. The mosaics of this mosque are incredibly beautiful. The main hall of this mosque is one of the most beautiful halls in the Islamic world, the amazing, fabulous colorful Windows especially during High Noon the light came through those colorful windows and you can see it's great Impressions on the tile.
  • Great place to visit, preferably in the morning. Consists also a very nice art shop. It is also not overpriced (150k rials).
  • Simply great, it is the only open free, women attended photografic workshop all over the Iran, during the first hours in the morning, when light and colour make the hall shine as a flowered rainbow
  • the best time to see this mosque is between 7:30 am to 9:30 that the sun shine is in a direction that you can see the colorful shine on the carpet like the beautiful photo of the mosque.
  • Really Really Beautiful place. Go there at sunrise for taking beautiful photos.
