Kabood (Goey) Mosque, Tabriz

4.2
#2 of 7 in Historic Sites in Tabriz
Feel the spiritual atmoshere in Kabood (Goey) Mosque, a 15th century mosque. The structure suffered severe damage in an earthquake in the 18th century, and the reconstruction is still taking place. See the only original part of the mosque, the entrance hall or iwan, with its impressive blue tile work. Marvel at many inscriptions and arabesque patterns on the walls inside, and appreciate the striking mosaics. Since religious practices still take place here, you can also see ceremonies and prayer sessions.

  • It was disappointing. I expected more from this famous place. It seems it used to be a great place to visit but it has been repaired very awful. The entrance shows how bad they repair this place. Inside the building and under the dome you can see remains of some awesome glazed ceramic works with old Islamic designs and that's all about this place.
  • An old old mosquee. The main door is impressive
  • an elegant building with a spectacular dome. it is just amazing.
  • This is a rebuilt mosque with the decorations hardly started. If you have been to the original ones in cities like esfahan, then this will not excite you.
  • I love this place. It's a masterpiece.
